“Pola Fanous is a quietly intimidating poet.
In this collection he hides his daggers behind clouds
and orders us to dance with him in the rain.”
“STRONGSOFT” is the striking debut book
by Australian-Egyptian poet Pola Fanous.
It speaks to humans in totality - addressing
not only light and darkness, but grey areas
too. Pola confronts issues of culture
and issues of self - masculinity, misogyny,
passion and addiction, all with a softness
so sharp it stuns. If you are seeking divine
balance… this book will change your life.
