9781900715089: The Mapmakers of Spitalfields

These stories, set in London's Banglatown and Bangladesh, bring startlingly fresh insights to the experiences of exile and settlement. Written between realism and fantasy, acerbic humour and delicate grace, they explore the lives of exiles and settlers, traders and holy men, transvestite actors and the leather-jacketed, pool-playing youths who defended Brick Lane from skinhead incursion

In the title story, Islam makes dazzling use of the metaphor of map-making as Brothero-Man, the 'invisible surveyor... galloping the veins of your city' becomes the collective consciousness of all the settlers inscribing their realities on the parts of Britain they are claiming as their own.
