London, that distant rainy place his father lived in once, is where Mehran finds himself after leaving Karachi. And it is there that his adult life unfolds: he discovers the joys of poetry, faces the trials of love and work and spends his dreaming hours ?sending cloud messages to other places?. A feeling of restlesness pursues Mehran as he travels to Italy, India and Pakistan. But the relationships he forms ? with wounded, passionate Marvi, volatile Marco and the enigmatic Riccarda ? and his power of recollection finally bring him some sense, however fleeting, of belonging, in this beautifully poignant paean to lost love. About the Author Aamer Hussein was born in Karachi in 1955 and moved to London in his teens. He reviews regularly for the Independent, lectures at the University of Southampton and the Institute of English Studies, and is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature. His novella Another Gulmohar Tree was shortlisted for the Commonwealth Writers? Prize Europe and South Asia 2010.
