Poetic, journalistic, a call to transformation, Adrienne Amundsen’s new collection of poetry, Reclaiming the Apple: Poems from Afghanistan, will take you on a journey in which tragedy becomes hope, journey that enlightens and enriches. Her poetry describes a country devastated by war, but people determined and resilient in impossible circumstances. Both Afghans and American soldiers are depicted in this journey into a modern war zone. Adrienne’s poems transport us with their musicality, their sensuality,their mythic span and their political passion.

Beginning with song, ending with prayer, we the readers are with her all the way. “Adrienne’s images are fierce and soft, alluring and alarming. They ask nothing and everything from the reader. They
