Editorial Reviews

Review

"Akbar's meandering poetic journey should appeal to those who, like him, believe in the challenge of an unremitting search for life's sublime meaning." —www.dawn.com


"Suspended Somewhere Between does a remarkable job of exploring dualities and even multiplicities of the self, of the loneliness and the longing for identity that has anguished the Pakistani soul since its inception. Akbar Ahmed's voice is a vital contribution to the world of contemporary letters and he has aptly been called 'a national treasure.'" —Pakistaniaat: A Journal of Pakistan Studies (August 2011)


"A remarkable, and at times surprising, collection of poems." —www.WritersHub.co.uk


"At their best, Ahmed's poems realign the reader towards love, even forgiveness, through their language and attention." —www.AmericanBazaarMag.com


"The collection is a treat for all those who look for sublimity in poetry." —Z.G. Muhammad, Greater Kashmir
