Book Description:
In this long awaited second collection from Aamer Hussein, he continues and deepens his oblique, subversive portrayal of the preoccupations of our time: betrayal, bereavement, exile, belonging and the writer s role. In 'This Other Salt' a writer, torn between two loves, looks for his lost words in the gap between memory, mourning and desire; in 'The Lost Cantos of the Silken Tiger' a poet revenges herself on her faithless lover by turning their romance into a biblical legend; and in 'The Blue Direction' a teenage boy's life uncannily begins to resemble the role he plays in a school operetta. Combining satire, legend, poetry, history and memoir, the linked stories of This Other Salt reveal an author of uncommon talent at the height of his craft.
