This collection of stories arise out of the writer’s experience of many years as a brown man in a predominantly white world – an everyday encounter that is difficult to imagine from home; an experience that often causes fundamental, tectonic shifts in character and outlook. His characters remain suspended between two continents, two cultures, two different lives.

All too often, migration to the West results in the realization that one’s existence in another culture is compromised in many ways, that one was much happier back home . But by the time this realization occurs, it is too late to return.
