Al-Saddiq Al-Raddi is one of the leading African poets writing in Arabic today. Famous in his native Sudan, the vivid imagery of his searing, lyric poems create the world afresh in their yearning for transcendence. Born in Omdurman, Khartoum in 1969, Saddiq has published four volumes of poetry, including his Collected Poems (Cairo, 2009). From 2006, he was the cultural editor of Al-Sudani newspaper until he was forced into exile in 2012, barely escaping arrest. He claimed asylum in the UK and now lives in London. Arabic-English bilingual edition. Translated by Mark Ford and Sarah Maguire.
