“Quarantine with Rilke was my attempt to claim the universal part of being human.”
Asnia Asim is a poet and writer and her new book of poems, Quarantine with Rilke, shares with the reader an intimacy with the Self, a quiet relationship between the divine and the everyday.
Asnia is the recipient of the University of Chicago’s Humanities Fellowship and Brandeis University’s Allan Slifka Award. Her poems have received multiple nominations for the Pushcart prize and Best of the Net Anthology and have appeared (are forthcoming) in Typehouse, Michigan Quarterly, Cream City, The Rupture, Salamander, River Styx, Nimrod, Image, Juked, and BOOTH, among others.
