“…With a sort of precision and attention most poets would reserve for the mapping of a butterfly wing, in Mall Flower, Tina Barry dedicates both her short fictions and poems to something equally perplexing and full of beautiful angles and confusing symbols - she points the magnifying glass so that it reflects the sun against the sheen of plastic, the semi-precious, the hair-sprayed, fast-food fed realities that usher many of us into and out of days, years, and even decades of longing for genuine connections.”
Jen Knox, After the Gazebo

Veils, Halos & Shackles
International Poetry on the Opression and Empowerment of Women
Editors: Charles Ades Fishman and Smita Sahay
The December 2012 rape and murder of Jyoti Singh Pandey in Delhi moved thousands of people to pour into the streets in protest. Veils, Halos, and Shackles: International Poetry on the Oppression and Empowerment of Women was conceived in response to that vicious gang-rape and to the unprecedented public activism for women’s safety that followed it.
The anthology includes nearly 200 poems by poets from dozens of countries — from Brazil to Bangladesh, and from New Zealand to Nigeria. Many of the contributors are among the most accomplished living poets.
