A tale of and for our turbulent times
2 April 2017
A wonderful, poignant tale of two people caught in today's too-familiar dangerous circumstances of political upheavals and terrorism, with strangely strong (and at the same time, fragile) ties of love binding them through times of turmoil. The novel is no doubt prescient in today's times of Brexit and Refugee crisis unfolding on the global stage, but what touched me was the narrative of migration, love, familial ties and human condition that news broadcasts and policy wonks seldom have time to ponder.
Go for it, there is no book more timely than this one.
