Whether negotiating the mind-games of border security services or performing ablutions in a London bathroom, Mohammad Chowdhury's life travelling the world brings daily challenges.
Mohammad Chowdhury's new book Border Crossings: My Journey as an Outsider (NewSouth Books, July 2023) is a thrilling ride from the city of minarets to the heights of picture-perfect skyscrapers. A journey of finding one's own identity, it is the story of a British born, Bangladeshi man of Muslim faith, trying to reconcile his western and eastern identities and the inconsistencies between the two.
Hustling his way through days and nights negotiating one cultural micro-adjustment after another, Chowdhury's story reflects our own struggles to find a place where we truly belong.
AIIA Victoria invites you to join author Mohammad Chowdhury and The Honorable Jaala Pulford for an intimate fireside chat as he discusses his journey across cultures and the journey of someone living and growing up in diaspora. Copies will be available for sale and for signing.
