‘Dear Big Gods’

Posted: 6th September 2019

Poet Mona Arshi’s latest collection.

Award-winning poet and Augustinian parent, Mona Arshi, has recently published her latest, wonderful, collection of poetry, ‘Dear Big Gods’.  Published in April 2019, ‘Dear Big Gods’ follows Ms Arshi’s Forward Prize-winning collection, ‘Small Hands’.

‘Dear Big Gods’ is published by Liverpool University Press and it ‘continues its lyrical and exact exploration of the aftershocks of grief…. Nevertheless, at the centre of this book is an overarching commitment to hope, in whatever form it takes…’
