Reticent Bodies is Toronto author Moez Surani's long-awaited debut collection. Shaped by a childhood spent listening to a mixture of Gujarati, Kutchi, Urdu and Swahili around the kitchen table, while attending a French Immersion school in Toronto, Surani's poems could define the epitome of Canada's ethnic layering. Spare Canadian lyricism is combined with unusual linguistic rhythms and sharp bursts of vibrant imagery in an exceptional poetic debut.
Moez Surani's writing has been included in numerous anthologies and literary journals including Carousel, Prairie Fire, Vallum and Arc Poetry Magazine. He has served as a writer-in-residence for the Toronto Catholic District School Board and curator for the Strong Words Reading Series in Toronto. His multi-lingual upbringing is reflected in his award-winning writing.
