Border Lines introduces us to a cast of characters who are vivid, yet understated. It is this polarity that makes them all the more compelling. Most notable is Ian, the link throughout the collection, often in discordance with himself and the world around him. From his early years, Ian struggles with issues of self-doubt and disappointment, though ultimately his quest for self-discovery moves him forward on a path to understanding and personal growth. Set in Ireland, Greece, Germany and Spain, the interconnected stories in Border Lines are multi-layered and rich. The writing is poetic, incisive and at times subdued, lending itself well to the universal themes of this odyssey.
