Tamer Fathy

Tamer Fathy's debut collection of poetry, Yesterday I Lost A Button, was published in 2005. All of the poems in the book revolved around clothes-their personalities, their memories, and their desires. Only 24 years old at the time of the book's well-received publication, Fathy is a promising new name in Egyptian poetry.
