A Glimmer in the Dark is a poetry collection documenting the heartbreaking and transformative journey of Afghan refugee Samman Akbarzada. Akbarzada interweaves a powerful tapestry of prose reflecting on her war-torn homeland of Afghanistan and the suffering and resiliance of those living on the margins of yet another immense human tragedy. “A Glimmer In The Dark” is ultimately about the perseverance and strength survivors find through deep familial bonds and the compassionate assistance of communities devoted to helping those displaced by war and suffering.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
The poems living inside its pages include pieces from my eighth-grade days in 2016, as I wrote in the classroom that might never see the daylight again. Seated beside the window, scribbling secretly under the desk, as a naive dreamer girl, lost in her own little world, my Afghan dream. And the timeframe ceases in March 2022, as I stared at the glooming window to my left, wondering what just happened to me, to her, to him, to them, to us…But why I had it almost, if it was bound to square one… and how could I stop the untamed train that left us a trainwreck, a reclused wanderer, senseless ruminations, my shrouded motherland, and a million broken dreams.
It's a six-year timeline, a portion of my life that will live on through these pages. I tried to include the ones I thought would fit best.
