How to Cure a Ghost
How to Cure a Ghost by Fariha Róisín is a collection of poems exploring Róisín’s experience as a young, queer, Muslim femme navigating the difficulties of her intersectionality. Simultaneously, the compilation unpacks the contentious relationship that exists between Róisín and her mother, both platonic and romantic heartbreaks, and the cognitive dissonance felt as a result of being so divided among her broad spectrum of identities.
