“This is a searing collection of poems that are brilliantly tender, Malik is beautiful in telling stories where the truth creeps up on you in a quiet and powerful way. Venus Shells has in an honest and magical way mapped my journey of motherhood in a visceral, heart-breaking, and poignant new light. I would recommend this to all mothers, to find comfort and a sense of hope, in even the most exhausting and darkest moments.” - Shagufta K. Iqbal

Venus Shells is collection of poems about individual identity within a predominately Muslim community. Nadia Malik’s debut follows family, relationships and a melding of cultural ideas, mixed with rich myth and tales told in Arabic and Indonesian.
