Esther Iverem’s new collection of poems is a wide-ranging meditation that proves the adage that the personal is political, and the political is profoundly personal. As an active member of DC Poets Against the War, she represents a new generation of poets actively engaged in speaking truth to power in a new era of global empire. Living in Babylon combines the popularity of spoken word with the serious reflection and composition required for the times.

“Esther Iverem lives where I live. If she's living in Babylon I'd better listen to her. You too. I remember when this woman told us the news in newspapers. Well, it's poetry this time. In this second volume of poems, I think she asks the most important question of the 21st century--which America Is America? Iverem teaches one how to turn pain into power and power into poetry.”

-E. Ethelbert Miller
