The Book of Trivialities, originally written in the poet's native Arabic, is beautifully rendered into English by award-winning translator Kareem James Abu-Zeid.

“Majed Mujed's The Book of Trivialities is a gem of a book; intimate, tender, thought-provoking and intricately crafted, these aphoristic fragments contain a wisdom and humour that marks them as anything but trivial. These are poems to revisit again and again for their sharp wit, and their revelatory power.” - Jessica Traynor
