Emma and Other Poems is a collection of poems all related to the universal concept of love.

'The work assembled here is forceful, playful, tender and memorable. As stories of both heartache and hope they bring forth vivid characters at moments of longing, love and loss. Many of these poems manage to be both delicately bitter and sweet, surprising and moving. Aftab Yusuf Shaikh is a writer to watch.'
