-(Nimah speaks) for the too-often silent voice of the Arab woman... a unique and articulate window to the soul...
Stephen L. Brundage, Arab News
-Ni'mah Nawwab, Saudi poet, essayist, editor and photographer, writes fluently in English, sharing in poetry her thoughts, her emotions, her important life experiences... Nawwab deals realistically with life's problems, yet she emerges as an optimist, a champion of the human spirit. Her poems are refreshingly honest and unafraid.
Robert W. Lebling Aramco World Magazine
-Here is the remarkable poetry of a Saudi woman, living deeply rooted in the Arab world, possessing the widest possible horizon of education and travel, writing in literary English and expressing a highly individualized consciousness that is both Arab and cosmopolitan, both Islamic and liberally humanist.

Nimah Ismail Nawwab unfurls for us a world of beauty, pathos, tragedy, longing, restoration, and hope. She also offers us rare glimpses into the world of Saudi women that are at once unique and rooted in the passions, pathologies and poignant simple pleasure of Saudi society, yet also strikingly universal.
