The book's blurb: Europe, Love Me Back is a collection of relentlessly questing, sharply satirical poems about the continent, and the poet’s fraught relationship with it. Hurting yet clear-eyed, Rizwan explores and exposes what it means to be a small brown woman in Dutch suburbs, hospitals and academia
This is an angry love letter, to a place left behind yet always there, continuing to matter and hurt and shape the poet’s identity.
