Nadeem Aslam The Blind Mans Garden

$10.00

Joe and Mikal, foster-brothers from a small town in Pakistan, secretly enter Afghanistan in order to help care for wounded civilians. But it soon becomes apparent that their good intentions can't keep them out of harm's way.

From the wilds of Afghanistan to the heart of the family left behind - their blind father, haunted by the death of his wife and by the mistakes he may have made in the name of Islam and nationhood; Jeo's wife, whose increasing resolve helps keep the household running, and her superstitious mother - Aslam takes us on an extraordinary journey.

In language as lyrical as it is piercing, The Blind Man's Garden unflinchingly describes a topical yet timeless world, powerfully evoking a place where the line between friend and enemy can be lost and where the desire to return home can burn brightest of all.
