In “How to mend: on motherhood and its ghosts”, Iman Mersal moves through unfamiliar spaces – internal, fluid and complex. Her voice changes, moving in and out of focus, back and forth in time, and across different physical spaces and cultural spaces. The strokes of the book are fine and interlacing, moving between the lyrical, diaristic, poetic and academic. They are quite serious and burdened steps towards an inner-space that is often neglected and dismissed from mainstream writings on motherhood. Edited by Maha Maamoun, Ala Younis, with Mai Abu ElDahab, “How to mend: on motherhood and its ghosts” is a joint collaboration between Kayfa ta and Mophradat
