Hafsah Aneela Bashir
Hafsah Aneela Bashir’s debut poetry collection “The Celox and the Clot” is by turns tender, poignant and fierce. With searingly sharp detail, this is an exploration of the private and the public, teasing out the relationship between the two; compelling readers to stop and look again and again at what they had imagined was the familiar.
Maria Ferguson – Writer
