Anees Salim's The Small-Town Sea is about a childhood interrupted by untimely death, departures and bereavement. This is a book where excursions to the beach turn hideously wrong. Childhood here is frequently interrupted by untimely death, departures and bad dreams.

When he sees a trail of blood on the floor, he imagines that his mother has bled to death in the bathroom. Fittingly, The Small-town Sea is the fictional representation of a nightmare that has plagued its author.
