In A Flat Place, British-Pakistani academic Noreen Masud deftly excavates the landscapes that have dotted her life, from expansive fields in Lahore to the archipelagos of Scotland. Her exploration is entangled with historical legacies and contemporary realities of trauma - of both person and the nation. A book that beguiles and saddens and does everything but flatten the complexity of human emotion.
