Now one of the major poets of the Arab world, Nasser was born in Jordan and worked as a journalist in Beirut and Cyprus for a decade in the 1970s and 1980s. Since 1987 he has lived in London, where he is managing and cultural editor of the daily newspaper Al-Quds Al-Arabi. He has published nine volumes of poetry, four travel memoirs, and a novel. His works have been translated into 10 languages. Two collections of his poetry are available in English, “Land of No Rain” (Bloomsbury, 2014) and “Shepard of Solitude” (Bipinal Books, 2010).
