“Drawing on legend, history, memoir, literature, and film, Hussein’s stories are meant to be cupped in both hands and savored slowly.”—Guardian

In his fourth collection, Aamer Hussein charts the geographies of leave-taking and homecoming, the consolations and rivalries of friendship, the yearnings of adolescence, and maturity’s tentative acceptance of longing. Moving from Karachi to England, through India, Java, Italy, and Spain, these exquisite stories engage with the grand narratives of our time.

Aamer Hussein was born in Karachi and moved to London in 1970. He reviews regularly for The Independent and The Times Literary Supplement. He has held visiting posts at the University of Southampton and the University of London, and is a fellow of the Royal Society of Literature.
