An impressive, confident debut about family and survival, against the backdrop of a history that is not written about often enough.

This is a novel about home, about belonging and exile; a compelling and complex insight into a recent past that still resonates.
Shah explores the chaos and fear of ordinary people’s lives during Amin’s rule, weaving personal stories of love and betrayal into heightening tension and violence . . . nail-biting.
