Exploring the Nature of Terror

The tree of doves.jpg

In his new book, celebrated poet, essayist, and Director of the University of Iowa International Writing Program Christopher Merrill explores the nature of terror, its place in the post-911 world and how terror unites and galvanizes those in the throes of it.
 
In The Tree of Doves: Ceremony, Expedition, War Merrill takes us on his exotic journeys to Malaysia, China, the Dead Sea and war-torn Syria.
