The Blotted Line

By Mehreen Ahmed

Riddled with foreign words, The Blotted Line is an international book of short stories. One thematic link that weaves the narratives together is its universal issue of loss. While the stories are individually unique, the characters in each tale lose something precious; not always in the sense of material possessions, but the loss of human values such as trust, freedom, and happiness.
