The Last Gundir

“The past is a palimpsest. And Nayef Din’s lush and painstaking recounting of it strips back time to an intricate, initial canvas…

This story is a poignant reminder that every day we pass over and through this invisible past. We should step cautiously, for we tread continually upon lost dreams.”
