Women Dancing on Rooftops
Bring your Belly CloseBook - 1997
Poetry and prose. Cultural Writing. Has this woman got attitude. Attitudes, really. Yasmin Ladha, Muslim woman from Calgary, hip-hops to Kashmir, Cochin, Bangalore and more, cross-culturing everyone she meets, herself included. Autobiography and travelogue, this book of prose and poetry brain teases as it breaks boundaries in explosively sensuous language. Now pure Calgary teenage bop, then impassioned or querulous prayer, now techno-chat, erotics, politics, then folkloric rerecordings. And always, rooftop woman talk, spiced and shiny. Challenging and original... --Phyllis Webb. Ladha is the author of LION'S GRANDMOTHER AND OTHER STORIES, and a chapbook, BRIDAL HANDS ON THE MAPLE. She currently teaches English at Chonbuk National University in Chonju, South Korea.
