Editorial Reviews

Review

"Anis Mojgani, Andrea Gibson, you and other young poets of their talent are the future of American poetry and frankly, that fills me with joy!" -- Thomas Lux, Guggenheim Fellow & recipient of the Kingsley Tufts Poetry Award for his book Split Horizons

"Mojgani is not your typical national poetry slam champion...The playfulness, startling originality, and lyric optimism are all gravy. He's simply the best there is right now." -- Taylor Mali, "The Last Time As We Are"

"Anis shook the dust off me and everyone else in the audience with the beauty of his words." -- Saul Williams, "Said the Shotgun to the Head”

Format: Paperback
This is 120 pages of poetic gold. Anis really knows his craft; he is a wordsmith to the extreme in that he can bend and shape collections of letters into meanings we never knew they could be. This, coupled with his amazing honesty, makes The Feather Room a book of poetry that I am sure people will be analyzing 200 years from now. Screw Byron, Anis is one of the greatest tortured poets you will ever read. In the form of poems about loss and heartbreak, Anis will pull you out of the long lines at Disneyland and strap you into a coaster that is headed where you know not.
This is an amazing collection, and it should be on the shelf of any self respecting poet or poetry lover. He tackles tough issues like Billy the Kid, and why poets are starting to hate the over used line break. Well, he only tackles one of those directly. Some of the poems in this book feel like they need to be screamed out from on top of a mountain, and some of them feel like they need to be read softly, alone, by just enough candlelight to see the page. Sure, every other poem is about feathers or birds--well, actually it's not, sorry bird loving people. This work is varied in its tones and subjects, all of them well placed.
I get the feeling that Anis writes like he recites. Slowly placed, carful words, each one aware of the next and the above, clear in their mission are interspaced with the fury of writing lightning in a thunderstorm.
This book will make you forget your hunger. This book will make you remember your love. This book will make you stop at various points of the day and stare at some insignificant little object for long periods of time. This book will give you wings. This book will make you magic. Buy this book.

When I first learned about Anis Mojgani I only knew him as a spoken word poet. I have been hooked ever since I stumbled upon his TWLOHA performance of "Shake the Dust". Little did I know that his genius had been put to paper through actual written poetry. Well lucky for me just as I learned about his written poetry this beautiful piece of work was taking pre-orders! 'The Feather Room' takes you back to your childhood, allowing the reader to relive each moment with the same naive notions of days that have passed. Yet still has deep thought that would have the smartest of individuals ponder parts of their lives. My personal favorite was "Avignon." Overall amazing work. Must Have!

The poems in this book are drop-dead gorgeous. I love the way Anis Mojgani can hold up even the darkest moment and find the light in it. Nobody else writes like this. The Feather Room is magic.

A truly touching, emotional, thought-provoking, and beautiful read.... I originally purchased this as a gift for a dear friend who first introduced me to Anis's performances on YouTube, and ended up reading it in full prior to gifting it. A tremendous example of a truly great talent.

While reading it from start to finish I thought to myself; How does one single person have enough creativity and passion in them to write so much poetry that is all unique, tells its own story, and doesn't get boring. How Anis manages to write such great poems astounds me. Fell in love with the book the second I read the short forward poem

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Anis' work is a spiritual, aesthetic experience; it's poetry that will echo in your head for days. Sparse and effusive, both in perfect measure, this book unapologetically revels in what it means to be alive. Illustrations interspersed throughout the poems take the sensory experience of reading Anis' poetry to another level entirely. This book is soft, empowering, and feels somehow familiar, as infinitely reassuring as Gatsby's smile or the words of an old friend.
