"Thomas Rain Crowe brings the Persian Sufi poet Hafiz (1326–1390) to life in this lively version of his timeless work. A fine addition to the growing number of English translations of his work."—The Bloomsbury Review
"Takes us home to the truths that transcend political factionalism, religious fanaticism, and literary provincialism. . . . Thomas Rain Crowe takes this ancient form and makes it alive with our own language while still retaining the echoes of the old ways embodied in the ghazal."—Parabola
"Hafiz speaks the immortal language of love today through Thomas Rain Crowe."—Shaykh Sherif Baba, head of the Turkish Rifa'i-Marufi Sufi Order of America
"The source, the gravity, and the light that will direct us home is Love. Hafiz is a poet intoxicated by this incredible Love—a wise-drunk man—how rare! Thomas Rain Crowe brings this illuminating poetry to this edge of centuries as we continue to look for love—perfect timing for these songs."—Joy Harjo, author of In Mad Love and War
"This book is an inspiring reflection of the best of what humanity has to give. Congratulations to Thomas Crowe and his Persian muse."—Bobi Jones, Welsh poet and author of Welsh Mysticism
