The Inheritors

Nadeem Zaman



Publication date: 17 July 2024

ISBN: 9781804471128




We inherit the lineage we’re all born into, with its history and its contradictions, with the very beautiful and the very ugly, neither of which we can have a hand in being able to change.

The family of Nisar Chowdhury moves from Dhaka to Chicago when he is just thirteen, and he grows up feeling estranged from both lands. Thirty years on, he returns to the city of his birth, only to find it changed beyond recognition.

Rekindling old relationships and trying to get to grips with his father’s decision to sell off their remaining properties in the city, Nisar must navigate the labyrinth of a society that has moved on without him. The Inheritors is a vivid portrait of a city giddy with the march of change.
