I was expecting a larger handful of newer poems from this amazing poet. It only had five new poems. This combines both of Lleshanaku's previous collections "Fresco" & "Child of Nature" I read both of those collections and was blown away. She has a new collection out there in the book world in which I plan on reading very soon!

Really great collection; it was the first Albanian poet I've read and I was impressed by Lleshanaku's ability to create strong associations through unique and unusual imagery. The collection is political yet personal; feminine and masculine at the same time. Favourite poems: 'In the Absence of Water', 'The Almshouse' and 'So Long As'.

Beautiful - what a find. This sat on my shelf for a few years - so happy I finally picked it up. There's an embarassment of riches here. returnreturnLleshanaku has an amazing ability to construct raw folky metapors out of nowhere, and to load the most banal things with a profound wisdom. I was going to quote some lines - but the book's on your shelf, just go pick it up. The best poems are all in 'Fresco'.
