Ziryabs Gnu
is a new 64-page publication from Farpoint Recordings featuring poetry by Schirin Nowrousian in German and English. During 2001 & 2002 her travels led her to Dublin, Ireland where she spent time thinking and writing many texts. Some of these, amongst others can now be found in this book...

Farpoint Recordings has a special numbered edition of 200 with a new audio CD. This CD contains recordings of a selection of the poems read by the author. There are a number of related sound interludes placed between the poems. These sound pieces were made by Anthony Kelly & David Stalling in collaboration with Schirin Nowrousian.

The author Schirin Nowrousian was born in Germany and grew up in the Ruhr area. She lived for many years in France (mainly in Paris, but also in other regions) and now resides in Brussels.

We look forward to seeing you at the book launch. Light refreshments will be served.

This event is kindly supported by the Goethe Institut Dublin.
