Yvonne Green

Born to a multilingual Central Asian family in London, Yvonne practised law in another life. She burst onto the poetry scene with Boukhara, which won the 2007 Poetry Business Book & Pamphlet Competition. Yvonne has since published four more collections: The Assay (Hanisoo-yi (Hebrew)); After Semyon Izraelivich Lipkin, the 2011 Poetry Book Society's Translation Choice; Honoured, a Poetry Book Society Recommendation; and most recently Jam and Jerusalem. Her work takes us into the unfamiliar world of Boukhara and Judeo-Tajik culture and has been described as ‘vivid’, ‘enthralling’ and ‘unforgettable’.
