Migrant Life: Stories of Reverist
By Omar Faruque Shipon
The narrator is ultimately the catalyst or repository for the stories of the varied quotidian workers he encounters. While not topographically explicit, the stories catch for us up close something of the poetry of conversations between migrant workers, often revealing complicated: stories of a worker missing his father's funeral far away, a mother's sorrow even her migrant son for whatever reason tries to lie on speakerphone, unfairnesses.
By reading these stories, you enter tragic-comic lives you perhaps never realised before, and yet perhaps uncannily similar in some ways to your own.
