The definition of diaspora is the dispersion of any people from their original homeland. But what does it mean to write diaspora poetry? Momtaza Mehri's debut collection probes this question, spanning the waves of immigration to and from Somalia during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, taking us from Mogadishu to Naples, from Lampedusa to London. We arrive at the present day, where these inherited histories and silences endure across generations.
