Registers of Illuminated Villages

By Tarfia Faizullah.

“Tarfia Faizullah is a poet of brave and unflinching vision.” —Natasha Trethewey

Somebody is always singing. Songs
were not allowed. Mother said,
Dance and the bells will sing with you.
I slithered. Glass beneath my feet. I
locked the door. I did not
die. I shaved my head. Until the horns
I knew were there were visible.
Until the doorknob went silent.

—from “100 Bells”

Registers of Illuminated Villages is Tarfia Faizullah’s highly anticipated second collection, following her award-winning debut, Seam. Faizullah’s new work extends and transforms her powerful accounts of violence, war, and loss into poems of many forms and voices—elegies, outcries, self-portraits, and larger-scale confrontations with discrimination, family, and memory. One poem steps down the page like a Slinky; another poem responds to makeup homework completed in the summer of a childhood accident; other poems punctuate the collection with dark meditations on dissociation, discipline, defiance, and destiny; and the near-title poem, “Register of Eliminated Villages,” suggests illuminated texts, one a Qur’an in which the speaker’s name might be found, and the other a register of 397 villages destroyed in northern Iraq. Faizullah is an essential new poet whose work only grows more urgent, beautiful, and—even in its unsparing brutality—full of love.

Join us for an evening with R.J. Theodore with her new book Flotsam

Join us to discuss and celebrate the release of Flotsam (Peridot Shift #1) with author R. J. Theodore on Tuesday April 17th at 7:00pm.

About the book:

A fantastical steampunk first contact novel that ties together high magic, high technology, and bold characters to craft a story you won’t soon forget.
Captain Talis just wants to keep her airship crew from starving, and maybe scrape up enough cash for some badly needed repairs. When an anonymous client offers a small fortune to root through a pile of atmospheric wreckage, it seems like an easy payday. The job yields an ancient ring, a forbidden secret, and a host of deadly enemies.
Now on the run from cultists with powerful allies, Talis needs to unload the ring as quickly as possible. Her desperate search for a buyer and the fallout from her discovery leads to a planetary battle between a secret society, alien forces, and even the gods themselves.
Talis and her crew have just one desperate chance to make things right before their potential big score destroys them all.

About the author:

R J Theodore lives in New England where she splits her time between writing, reading, and design. She has been a voracious reader as far back as she can remember, staggering her parents with the piles of new paperbacks she would hunt down in local bookstores. Her broad tastes have lead her to write novels that aren’t easily classified into any genre but are guaranteed to be an adventure. She wrote (though never finished) her first novel at age thirteen. It was a Star Trek fan fiction, and it’s probably best that it’s been lost to the ages (Though her publisher would very much like to read it. – Ed.). As she approached college, her focus switched to illustration and design, but she rediscovered story telling through narrative after graduating from art school. With the release of Flotsam, Theodore will debut her Peridot Shift series of steampunk first contact novels.
