Writing words with fire is a collection of poems that reveal the pressures and poignancy of the human experience. Through a rich array of verse, Kehar explores themes that at first seem familiar but soon captivate you with their stark originality. The essence of love, betrayal, happiness and human bondage acquire a profound meaning that goes beyond the bounds of social conventions and morality. This collection is welcome proof of the emergence of a new voice in English poetry from Pakistan.
