    Reveries about language, Bolfek-Radovani, Jasmina (Mina Ray), printed for Language Acts and Worldmaking under the imprint of the Faculty of Arts & Humanities, King’s College London (ISBN: 978-1-897747-36-0), 2019 (£8.99). 

    “Jasmina Bolfek-Radovani’s Reveries about Language explores the extraordinary condition of being a double exile. Her multilingual poems, employing English, French and Croatian, trace a journey of self becoming through language. Poetic space is created for contextualisation, philosophical and literary thought as well as polyphony and hybridity. The work is utterly contemporary, absorbing and beguiling.” (David Caddy, Tears in the Fence)
