A Call to Travel: Muslim Odysseys
The delicate sensibility of these stories endows them with a gentle honesty.
-- Colin Thubron, award-winning travel writer and novelist --
The stories are delightful shapes of time that leaves an impression that life is very real yet elusive, shifting between transience and permanence. The reader can choose to observe and ponder, or travel and disappear in the stories.
-- Isa Kamari, novelist, essayist, musician and playwright --
If you're looking for the frenetic, the jangling, the adrenaline-filled tales of so much modern travel writing, you've come to the wrong place. To travel with Rumaizah Abu Bakar is to voyage into a world of the quiet and understated, a place where wonder unfurls in fine detail under a gracious and appreciative eye.
-- Carl Hoffman, author of Savage Harvest (2014 NYT bestseller) --
