Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2017
Discover the unforgettable novel picked among 2017's most anticipated books by the Guardian, Daily Telegraph, Buzzfeed, New York Times and many more.... An extraordinary story of love and hope, travelling from the Middle East to London and beyond, from the best-selling, Man Booker-short-listed author of The Reluctant Fundamentalist.
Nadia and Saeed are two ordinary young people attempting to do an extraordinary thing - to fall in love - in a world turned upside down. Theirs will be a love story but also a story about how we live now and how we might live tomorrow, of a world in crisis and two human beings travelling through it.
Civil war has come to the city which Nadia and Saeed call home. Before long they will need to leave their motherland behind - when the streets are no longer useable and the unknown is safer than the known. They will join the great outpouring of people fleeing a collapsing city, hoping against hope, looking for their place in the world....

A Well Told Story Told From Far Away

This a a brilliant tale beautifully told of what it is when your world slowly disintegrates and the familiar becomes alien and then to be a refugee in a strange world.

It deals with the terrible events in a very gentle and genteel way. It has beautifully crafted language and it slips smoothly by.

There in lies the problem it reads as if the writer has never had a days hardship in his life. It is a tale told from the top looking down on the hoi polloi through a reverse telescope.

It very well done but its also very Oxbridge. it just lacks a feeling of authenticity.
