Lifelines is an enthralling collection of short stories that will take you on some unforgettable journeys - journeys that span continents and decades, transgressing social boundaries and raising ethical dilemmas along the way.
The protagonists of these tales find themselves re-drawing their own destinies as they map their lifelines in unique, often unanticipated ways. The rapidly changing realities of the 21st-century require these individuals to navigate through uncharted waters, in a world increasingly shaped by the forces of globalisation, development and migration. One where the old ways are being challenged as never before, even in the traditionalist heartlands of South Asia.
Lifelines portrays the trials and triumphs of men, women and children who find themselves facing unexpected challenges – and discover that the decisions that they take, for better or worse, have consequences they never envisaged.

Surprising, engaging, and delightful! I devoured this in two days. They really captured the Bengali experience. Each story was different, but full of rich, intimate, relatable details. Some of the best work I’ve seen from these talented authors.
