At Hajj is a stunning debut from Amaan Hyder. In a collection that flickers between poetry and poetic prose, the poet embarks on the annual Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca. Drawing the boiling crowds of Saudi Arabia into stark contrast with the isolation of the individual, Hyder searches for the different forms we take. Moving between forms and between countries, this is a bustling and poignant book about family, religion and the weight of tradition.
