1 Wolak, Bill & Karimi-Hakak, Mahmood Love Emergencies: Poems in English and Persian
Merrick, New York, USA Cross-Cultural Communications 2010 0893044806 / 978-0-89304-480-0 First Hard Cover New Poetry Stefan Jamiokowski 
"'Love Emergencies' evolved as an experiment in translation in which we sought to communicate our most intimate thoughts and feelings across language and culture without footnotes. . . . Although sealed in language on the page, these poems are seldom content to yield to their own limitations. Instead, they are always straining to reach beyond language into the turmoil of actual experience, where, as in a real emergency, when everything is at stake, language gets left behind and the body takes over—waving goodbye, touching a hand, opening into an embrace." —Bill Wolak & Mahmood Karimi-Hakak

3 Hafez—Mahmood Karimi-Hakak & Bill Wolak, Translators Your Lover's Beloved: 51 Ghazals by Hafez
Merrick, New York, USA Cross-Cultural Communications 2009 0893041122 / 978-0-89304-112-0 First Hard Cover New Poetry Cover Painting by Kayvan Asgari 
"The colloquial and accessible voice Hakak and Wolak tease out of these ghazals reveals the poet to be passionate, rebellious, and unerringly drunk with the kind of desire found only in Shakespeare's sonnets, or in the best of Shelley or Keats. . . . The emphasis in these translations, however, has been on the quality of language as it makes the transition to English, and on the essential Hafezian voice. Hafez, the lover and seeker of the sublime, comes out in lines which speak personally and immediately." —Naton Leslie
