About extended Syllables

Extended Syllables is the debut poetry book collection of Abdul Fattah Ismail, exploring modern life with words and sound. 

What is the future of gender relations?  Should we learn more about the impact of agribusiness on our health? How can immigrant families maintain tradition while leveraging Western economic opportunity? What can be done about police brutality? How do  you mend a broken heart? Does literacy matter today? Patience is still a virtue, right? 

These sociopolitical questions go examined in a dazzling blend of humor and pop culture references.  A call to arms for the lovers of romance and wisdom, Extended Syllables motivates you to build this city.
