Opting Out - Maged Zaher's collected poems

from 29.95

Opting Out: Early, New, and Collected Poems (2000–2015), by Maged Zaher, first in the Chatwin Collected Poets series.

We are proud that the Chatwin Collected Poets line launched with Maged Zaher. Zaher’s powerful, innovative voice has won wide accolades in recent years. We are thrilled to present his full range of work in this major collection.

“Zaher is a proud Seattleite (by way of Egypt), and a substantial collection of his work is a big deal for the Seattle literary scene, even more so because he’s being published by a Seattle press. Expect to hear a lot about this book.” (Seattle Review of Books)

Available in paperback, as well as a Special Hardcover Limited Edition of 250 signed and numbered copies, with special page of text handwritten by the author, are available until sold out.
