After his debut book — the semi-fictional historical chronicle Surat: Fall of a Port, Rise of a Prince – Defeat of the East India Company in the House of Commons — Moin Mir has come out with his first proper novel.

The Lost Fragrance of Infinity, subtitled A Novel Glowing with the Essence of Sufism, is a beautifully written story with multiple tiers. The narrative meanders like a mountain stream and is split into two parallel journeys; one relates a physical sojourn across continents, the other is an enthralling exploration of spirituality.
