“All bodies are mistranslated prophecies”
Sass Orol’s debut poetry collection reexamines gender in Jewish history and steps into the present with daring and delight. From Avraham in the desert to a trans girl at the National Gallery, these intricately crafted poems explore embodiment, self-determination and desire. Orol engages with traditional sources and the Hebrew language itself to show us a close-up view of the world that’s intimate and pulsating with change.
