Tariq Malik

March 28th, 2024

Tariq Malik revisits Kotli, a millennium-old city in the Punjab province of Pakistan, where he spent his formative years in Blood of Stone (Caitlin $20.00), his second poetry collection. Malik’s descriptions point to the city’s tapestry of “secrets and yearnings,” shaped by his collective experiences of dislocation and migration. This deeply personal exploration precedes Malik’s immigration to Canada, offering a reflection on his roots and identity. As the inhabitants of Kotli scatter in search of new homes, their journeys intertwine with those of Malik’s fellow mohijar, creating a diasporic narrative that resonates with themes of longing and adaptation. 9781773861265
