- Winner of the 2007 Stan and Tom Wick Poetry Prize ?How honored I am?how lucky?to have been able to choose this superb first book by Djelloul Marbrook that honors a lifetime of hidden achievement. . . . Sometimes the poems seem utterly symbolic, surreal; they are philosophical, historical, psychological, political, and spiritual. The genius is in the many ways these poems can be read. I kept being rewarded by new awarenesses of the poet?s intentions, by the breadth and scope of the manuscript. As I read, I felt more and more that it was impossible that this was a first book. It seemed the writer knew exactly what to say, and, more importantly, exactly what to leave out.? ?Toi Derricotte, judge ?In a dizzying and divisive time, it?s beautiful to see how Djelloul Marbrook?s wise and flinty poems outfox the Furies of exile, prejudice, and longing. Succinct, aphoristic, rich with the poet?s resilient clarity in the face of a knockabout world, Far from Algiers is a remarkable and distinctive debut.? ?Cyrus Cassells ?Djelloul Marbrook, ?a highly skilled outsider,? bursts into poetry with this splendid first book, which brings together the energy of a young poet with the wisdom of long experience.?
