"Mothers wear many hats but can never shed the one marked "mother". Setareh Ebrahimi reflects on a stage of life that never ends, in a cracked mirror that reveals much and hints at other secrets as yet unwritten." Barry Fentiman Hall

Reviews of In My Arms

‘The mood of In My Arms is breathless, deathless, hushed, brimming with imagery that engages and intoxicates the senses.’ Ink, Sweat & Tears

‘The debut pamphlet from Setareh Ebrahimi announces a new talent for a new era in spoken word and live literature. The ‘secret weight’ of this book is its ability to fuse surreal lyricism and powerful imagery.’ Joelle Taylor
