Rumi’s Little Book of Life Translated by Maryam Mafi and Azima Melita Kolin


Rumi, the 13th-century theologian, poet, and Sufi mystic, is renowned for his poetry on love, loss, and longing. This small tome, with 196 poems previously unavailable in English, puts a sharp focus on the inner life, including the heart and mind, spirit, and soul. It provides plenty to think about, puzzle over, and, at the same time, inspire.
