Describe the novel in a tweet


A novel about friendship guilt penance and deliverance. The attempt for a father’s love and a story of Afghani refugee in the USA.

What makes this novel interesting?

I really like that it treats the story of Afghan family. How their life is disrupted by the war and by terrorist groups and how they assimilate in the American culture. I think that this is a nice counterbalance with the usual view on Afghanistan after 9/11.

In what categories would you place this novel?

afghanistan, friendship
