3 CHAPTER AND VERSE – NATIVE. One poet, one novelist, one theme – Abdul-Ahad Patel & Nafeesa Hamid

Nafeesa Hamid is a British Pakistani poet whose work erupts with femininity, empowerment and rebellion. Her new collection Besharam treads the shifting line between woman and daughter, Pakistan and the West, conservative Islam and liberal, and has been described as ‘powerful, rebellious, tender and bold’ (Hafsah Basheer) and ‘fearlessness as astonishing’ (Roz Goddard). Actor and writer Abdul-Ahad Patel recently starred in The Informer alongside Clive Owen. He is the author of Native - the gripping tale of a girl’s exploration into a world of Native-American prophecies and heritage, sacrifice and danger.
