Total amount:

A searing lens of a family as it attempts to cope with domestic life in the diaspora. From the backwater of Basmeer’s birth town as he copes with his adolescent inhibitions and through to his incompatible marriage, then to his eleven-year estrangement after he sires and rears five children who move to the diaspora with their mother, and with his blessings. In richly textured prose, Basmeer’s private moments are palpable as he reunites with his family only to find himself struggling to understand the shift in their personalities. His struggles are unending even in his 73rd year as he walks out of his home for the sixth time after years of miscommunication and abuse.

M. S. Basmeer is of African and Arab descent. He finally settled in Canada having lived and worked in the diaspora of three countries with his wife and five children. He holds three degrees in English studies and Education and continues to teach English studies part time.
