From the publisher

In each new collection Omar Sabbagh reaches higher and deeper and For Echo is no exception. Writing in the preface to the collection Omar talks about how his best poems, the most real are those which he writes ‘not as myself but as the person ‘who I’d like to be.’ These poems represent, ‘a kind of reaching-forth.’ And this is the hallmark of all great art, the reaching beyond what we are, even if it constantly feels impossible. In these poignant, intelligent, transformative poems, Omar Sabbagh is reaching towards ‘the person who I’d like to be’. Who is that person? Read For Echo and you’ll be delighted to find out.
