Writing Words with Fire

The book I am really looking forward to this summer is Writing Words with Fire — an anthology of poems by young writer and law student, Taha Kehar.

As a former colleague, I have seen Taha’s marvellous play with words firsthand and believe that his work will be a good contribution to Pakistani poetry in English.

We are seeing some interesting and noteworthy English fiction by Pakistanis these days (Mohammad Hanif, Daniyal Mueenuddin, etc.) but I have yet  to come across any good English poetry books. Taha’s work promises to be an exploration of life and emotions from different perspectives — the reality as he sees it.

Will be posting more updates and a review of the book soon!
