About this book
A short novel about an Afghan student seeking freedom from politics, by the author of "Earth & Ashes", which was made into a feature film. 'A beautiful piece of writing' Ruth Pavey, "Independent"
Farhad is a typical student, interested in wine, women and poetry, and negligent of the religious conservatism of his grandfather. But one night changes all that. This work talks about the fractured mind and emotions of a country caught between religion and the political machinations of the world's super powers.
