After reading a few pages -- and more pages, because, really, once in, you can't stop -- I found myself seeing life as a poem, moments as exquisite beauty.
Of the calibre of Kenyon and Kooser, Barkat's writing is more than mere words on a page; she gives you sight. This book startles in its revelations, nudges the slumbering awake to wonder. --Ann Voskamp, of Holy Experience
"Inside Out" brings together threads of everyday experiences; this is a book of poems, but it might be better to categorize this as poetry invading the life of a person. Barkat is inviting us on a journey of awareness of hope." --Makoto Fujimura, Founder International Arts Movement
