From the publisher

Europe, Love Me Back is a collection of poems by Rakhshan Rizwan. Cover by Reena Makwana.

‘But no one was interested in eliciting my testimony;
after all I wasn’t dead – I wasn’t ill – and hadn’t this
country treated me so well?


For it is not a human right to be much more than Agamben’s bare life,
to exist in the hallowed halls of the academe,
because there comes a point when our wanting
is simply too much, obscene –’
