The Recommend:

World War II, the atomic bomb, the partition of India, 9/11 and Guantanamo… it’s hard to think of a piece of fiction in recent times that takes on so much and carries it off.

Epic and intricate at the same time, this is a novel that asks the question we should all be asking: “How did it come to this?”
