by Ibrahim Jaffar
This writing is unique, untimely, and creative. With its free-flowing style, it constitutes an unusual narration that is very refreshing and qualitatively reflexive of the authorís subjective philosophies, existential stand, and allegiances.
Though it lays out no claims to transforming literatureís character and/or genre, this collection remains successful in bringing about an individualized perspective on our often-preconceived attitudes, conditioned mental constructions, and viewpoints.
Ibrahim Jaffarís distinguished manner of writing is altogether blessed, gentle, quirky, and seemingly easy, though also characteristically poe-philosophic, particularly illuminative, controversially new, and intrinsically suggestive of debate and discourse.
