Waiting for Leila

A collection of poems by

Samad's search for Leila is an odyssey through a world where the jackhammers are destroying more than bricks and mortar: they are tearing into the souls of people, brutalising them, leaving them with hearts as empty as the shop windows in Hanover Street.
Waiting for Leila is a powerful indictment of a way of life to which so many were condemned; but despite this, as Samad says: 'Our ghosts are ineradicable.'
