Poetry. Middle Eastern Studies. "In this long poem of poems, each poem page reads as if it could be the last. IF REALITY represents the end of the world (the end of politics the end of love the end of the poet) in its middle. It is the poem I have wanted to write, the poem that approaches an expression of the pain of the success of Nothing, the united statesian/global obliteration of the shared space of the tragic upon which it proliferates. It is the poem about end, without end." Rachel Levitsky "Maged Zaher's IF REALITY DOESN'T WORK OUT is a text made of 'body and blood' in which our discerning and earnest global subject imbues versified sentential units with desire, loss, and a sweet buoyancy. This book is honest, strong, and bright as it navigates manifestation and dissipation, in love, in revolution, at once celebrating and mourning intimacy and its opposites." Alli Warren"
