The story focuses on Salman, a Pakistani professor who, upon his grandfather’s death, becomes obsessed with his grandfather’s tale about a princess and jinn. All of his life, this story was the one thread that led back to his grandfather, the one thing he could still cherish from childhood. After studying his grandfather’s notes, Salman realizes there was so much the old man didn’t tell him. Details his grandfather shouldn’t know, things implied but left unsaid concerning the princess and the jinn. Impossible things.
The mystery eats at the core of Salman’s being since it might answer deeper questions about himself. Does he really love the woman he is with? Is he really ashamed of his family—former immigrants who remind him of what he wanted to leave behind when he went to college? Was there truly a jinn under the princess’s eucalyptus tree—and did his grandfather find it?
Risking it all, Salman travels to Lahore where his grandfather once lived. More than a mere journey seeking answers, it is a quest for Salman to finally discover himself once and for all. He wanders down streets he once imagined as a boy, now made stark by realities he never dreamed. A dream woven into an eternal tapestry that reveals the memory of heaven.
So all good stories leave questions…read Usman’s story and you’ll enjoy the answers.
