PoemsBook - 2011
From Europe and America to the streets of Bangladesh, the sharp-eyed poems in Dhaka Dust are culled from a rich melange of languages, people and poetic attitudes. Through lyric and narrative poems, Dilruba Ahmed's keen observations on birth, motherhood and death offer a unique way into the beckoning world. Voices of villagers resonate alongside those of global travellers, each searching for an elusive homeland in small towns and cities alike. In Ahmed's skilful hands, these disparate subjects adroitly capture the textures of life in this new century.
