Luck Is The Hook – Imtiaz Dharker



Flat rate UK Postage of £2.00 will be added to this order. Any additional books ordered are postage free.


Luck is the Hook is Imtiaz Dharker’s sixth book from Bloodaxe. In these poems, chance plays a part in finding or losing people and places that are loved: a change in the weather, a trick of language, a bomb that misses its mark, six pomegranate seeds eaten by mistake; all these events cast long shadows and raise questions about who is recording them, about believing, not believing, wanting to believe.

Imtiaz opened our 2018 festival for us and it was such a pleasure to welcome her. She was so gracious to everyone, as indeed, she generally is. Her visit was a real Verve highlight that we sincerely hope we can repeat.
