Fiction: Native Lands
by Nadir Nanji
Native Lands Kindle Edition...Available In Paperback & free With Kindle Unlimited.
Native Lands’ is a tale of isolation, madness and the inevitable inability to belong, following the journey of a narrator consistently bordering the invisible edge of insanity.
Starting off in London’s Baker Street, the story traverses the Atlantic, stopping off in places as varied as Downtown Vancouver, the cannabis fields of British Columbia’s Selkirk Mountains and the strip clubs of San Francisco.
Ultimately, the mayhem of the mental maze could never be articulated, and both being and body continue to remain in despondency, desolation and delirium, spurred on, quite often, only by a certain set of numbers, the world’s towering redwoods, and an invitation to infinity.

Mr. Nanji writes beautifully about that relentless and unanswerable question- the human condition. You can't help but love his unnamed quirky and amazingly self-aware and hilarious protagonist, a searcher who leaves London for British Columbia, encountering a myriad of real, raw, and rusty characters on his search for what? Truth? Peace? God? The reader never really finds out, though this reader didn't really need to know, she was happy just to be along for the journey. And journey she did.
