The Lost Story has two protagonists. The first is Sandy, a young and aspiring writer blessed with the rare opportunity to work with his idol, who is none other than the second protagonist, Saleem Afzal. Saleem is a Booker Prize winner whose life is shadowed by a mysterious past.
The chief premise of the book lies in the unique challenge that they undertake, which decrees that they each write one half of their stories and hand it over to the other to finish. When this fascinating task begins, there is some vortex of excitement for every reader, no matter in what genre their interest may lie. The stories that they write are anything but similar, as two sets of imaginations are set loose over no boundaries. The tales include those of sinister apparitions, haunted houses, the apocalypse, a homeward journey which turns chaotic, a terrorist and his mentor, two ill-fated brothers, an office romance, and the poignant story of an old man who is ignored in a cafe.
During his time with his Idol, Sandy starts to notice some signs that set off a series of puzzling questions in his mind. He is curious about the locked door in Saleem’s house and what might lie behind it. He is also intrigued by Saleem’s last book, The Lost Story, and ponders ceaselessly over what it is about. He wonders what happened to Saleem while he was writing it and what prevented him from finishing it.
The novel culminates in an unexpected ending, as the pressing secrets around Saleem’s life are finally unraveled.
The book was released on February 27, 2012, and falls under the category of fiction. It has an unprecedented style, and has received a very positive critical reception.
