Publisher's Summary

One September morning in 2008, an investment banker approaching forty, his career in collapse and his marriage unravelling, receives a surprise visitor at his home. He struggles to place the dishevelled figure carrying a backpack until he recognises a friend from his student days, a brilliant man who disappeared years earlier under mysterious circumstances. As the friends begin to talk, a journey begins that is by turns exhilarating, shocking, intimate and strange.

What the Critics Say

"[A]n ambitious and extraordinary achievement.... A novel about the entwining of politics and love and the painful quest for identity…this is a dazzling debut." (Sunday Times)

"[A] heartbreaking love story and a gripping account of one man's psychological disintegration...an exploration of the post-9/11 world that is both personal and political, epic and intensely moving." (Observer)

    "Rather pompous"

    The story has its moments and interesting insights, but overall the rather didactic and pompous language and expression of the author spoiled it for me. All too often the details were for no other purpose than to make it clear how erudite Mr Rahman is. The end was rather disappointing, but in the light of the above (no pun intended) not really that surprising. The narrator, while good on his own, is a bad match for this story.
