Born in Pakistan to Indian parents, Zubia immigrated to Italy when she was just one year old. Growing up in Europe as an Asian, she often felt like an outsider. At the same time, she maintained great affection for India and Pakistan. Encouraged by her father, she developed an interest in travel and other cultures. Moving to London, she got her degree in communication studies, focusing on issues of race, identity and religion.
Through writing this book, Zubia reconnects with her roots. Ultimately she discovers that she is fulfilling what her father dreamed for her, although the manner in which she accomplishes this comes as something of a surprise. This book was written in part to honor her father’s choices and the struggles of all those who try to escape poverty.
Experiences in The Black Dolphin are not relayed in chronological order, but are instead woven together as memories of other places connected by events. Scenes shift between Italy, Ghana, Holland, Tanzania, and India. Sparked by her experiences in Africa, Zubia’s past and present combine to form a new perspective on identity, immigration, and her family’s history.
