God, Does Humanity Exist? is a new collection of poems from Kamand Kojouri focusing on suffering, resistance, and, most importantly, hope.
In this, her 2nd collection, poet Kamand Kojouri turns the age-old question of the existence of God on its head, and asks whether humanity exists. Her main intention is to make us think and act more humanely: with compassion, empathy, and understanding.
In this powerful and evocative collection, Kojouri explores themes of resistance, empowerment, and hope. The four sections (Cries of Common Pain, Call to Action, Songs of Hope, and Echoes of Hope) are skillfully interwoven and resonate with urgency and relevance.
During these turbulent times when the world at large is experiencing a crisis in humanity, God, Does Humanity Exist? aims to be a beacon of light, encouraging us to think and act with more compassion, empathy and understanding.
For every book sold, a tree will be planted in Sub-Saharan Africa to help provide families with food, income, and a sustainable way of life. Royalties will also go to children’s charities in Iran.
Kamand Kojouri was born in Tehran, raised in Dubai and Toronto, and currently lives in Wales where she teaches creative writing as a doctoral candidate at Swansea University. She is inspired by the great Mystic and Sufi poets, such as Rumi and Hafez, as well as art and classical music (playing and composing runs in her family).
Her first poetry collection, The Eternal Dance: Love Poetry and Prose, was published in March 2018. She is currently working on a historical novel for her PhD programme.
God, Does Humanity Exist? is available in paperback (£9.99) and eBook (£4.99) formats.
