"[A]n important book. . . . Written 'in that third voice, a voice between two people, neither one nor the other, neither embodied nor disembodied.' I have wanted to know what fasting in Islam involved . . . to admire its intentions and effects in solitude. . . . I hope that multitudes will find their way to [this book]." -- Fanny Howe, author of The Winter Sun: Notes on a Vocation and Radical Love --Advance Praise
"Kazim Ali--a writer whose powers astonish in everything he puts pen to--has made in Fasting for Ramadan a book that is hybrid, peregrine, and deeply, quietly revelatory. Ali's meditations on the month-long ritual fast unfold, across cultures and spiritual practices, the deep meaning of a chosen foregoing. These journal-born pages are both intimate and public, at once ecumenical, particular, daily, and eloquently learned; planted on the deep roots of tradition, they breathe this moment's air. Is it possible for a work to be at once modest and an undeniable tour de force? This book proves: it is." --Jane Hirshfield, poet and essayist, author of Given Sugar, Given Salt and Nine Gates --Advance Praise
