I could not be held responsible
for desire
he could not be held at all


Tracking the joys and pains of the path through addiction, and wrestling with desire, inheritance and faith,Calling a Wolf a Wolfis the darkly sumptuous debut from award-winning poet Kaveh Akbar. These are powerful, intimate poems of thirst: for alcohol, for other bodies, for knowledge and for life.

'The struggle from late youth on, with and without God, agony, narcotics and love, is a torment rarely recorded with such sustained eloquence and passion as you will find in this collection'
FANNY HOWE
