About extended Syllables

Extended Syllables is the debut poetry book collection of Abdul Fattah Ismail, who uses the medium to explore key topics of our lives. 


What is the future of gender relations?  Should we learn more about the impact of agribusiness on our diet? How can immigrant families maintain identity roots while leveraging Western economic opportunity? What can be done about police brutality? How do  you mend a broken heart? Does literacy still matter? Patience is 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 will motivate you to build this city.
