Description - Wasps in a Golden Dream Hum a Strange Music by Asher Ghaffar
"In the age of increasing surveillance of borders, the border is where every thing significant occurs; map the border and you begin to understand the pulse of a nation," Asher Ghaffar writes in the introduction to wasps in a golden dream hum a strange music, his debut collection of poetry. Deploying the Wagah border literally and metaphorically, Ghaffar movingly describes the affective dimensions of "race" from the position of second-generation Canadian-born Muslim immigrant, deftly interrogating media depictions of the War on Terrorism.
