“A most unusual and brilliant thing.” Tomas Weber
Through its two mysterious sections, Ada Kaleh keeps returning to what cannot be returned to: a shared history, the memory of which has been obliterated, its shape barely implied by shadows. In voices of catastrophe, calmness, longing, and frustration, this brilliant poem opens out onto the collective experiences of interference that take the place of what you really need to remember clearly but can’t. There are teeth, police cars and film crews. From East Finchley to rivers in Finland, fires in the middle of vegetables and plants in the desert at night, Ada Kaleh is a poem like no other.
