Flat landscape is often discussed in terms of absence – of features, of interest, of life. But flat places can be fertile, lively and rich. They can enthral and entertain, as well as heal and soothe.
Noreen Masud grew up in a chaotic Lahore but glimpsed a freedom and simplicity amongst the flat outlying plains. As an adult coping with a diagnosis of complex PTSD, she travels around the lowlands of the British Isles, exploring their importance to her, the natural world and other writers.
A raw and thoughtful account of finding one’s place in the world.
