Ayaz Pirani's How Beautiful People Are Now Available for Preorder
Ayaz Pirani's forthcoming collection of poetry, How Beautiful People Are, is now available for preorder – https://www.gordonhillpress.com/collections/titles/products/how-beautiful-people-are.
In How Beautiful People Are, his third collection, Pirani continues to write his people’s pothi: a trans-national, inter-generational poetry of post-colonial love and loss animated by the syncretizing figure of Kabir and drawn from the extraordinary diwan of ginan and granth literature. Walking alongside the tiger of Ali and an assortment of beloved infidels, Ayaz uncovers just How Beautiful People Are. After all, what will darkness do, his poems ask, when a true guru makes light?
How Beautiful People Are will be released in Spring 2022.
