“A Leaf upon a Book is Anam Tariq’s debut poetry collection that gracefully shows a Bildungsroman contemplation of life crafted with a compelling command of language and skill.“– excerpt from Sara Hailstone’s review of A Leaf upon a Book for the Canadian magazine, Cloud Lake Literary
“Young poet Anam Tariq’s debut poetry collection is very special in its themes, semantics, and visual appeal. Her poetry emotes powerful, thoughtful, and keen observations on myriad social issues of global concern. There are poems on childhood, environment, illness, love, and loss among others. Anam’s poems will carry universal appeal as most folks will be able to relate to them. The language is full of imagery and exquisitely woven, somewhat reminiscent of Wordsworth, Frost and Shakespeare. Her words and their implications have been carefully and skillfully intertwined presenting a landscape of inspirational parables. A must read!”– Anita Nahal, author of Hey, Spilt Milk Is Spilt, Nothing Else
“I stumbled across A Leaf upon a Book and the intriguing title made me flip through the pages, and I was immersed in it from the beginning to the end. Anam Tariq has brilliantly inscribed her poems in this debut poetry collection of hers. This collection is a literal timeline of her poems, and the evolution and growth of the poet are prominently profound. ….. Her poems are rife with extended metaphors and imagery that create an entire scenic visualisation in the readers’ minds. One of her poems, “Lawlessness,” is the one with which I resonated the most, as it reflects the current political scenario all over the world.”– excerpt from Vidya Rajagopalan’s review of A Leaf upon a Book published in Writers’ Cafeteria
“A Leaf upon a Book is an intriguing collection of thoughtfully woven poems by a young and dynamic poet- Anam Tariq. It vividly covers different themes and stands out for its eloquent language. I loved the progression of Anam as a poet, depicted beautifully through her poems. Excellent work! An inspiration for young learners…. A must read!”– Ruby Aurangzeb
