In the Orchard, the Swallows (Paperback)


A young Pakistani man survives fifteen years in a dreadful prison by clinging on to a single memory of a girl he once met in his family's beautiful mountainside orchard - with disastrous consequences. Elegant and lyrical but never sentimental, this moving tale of love and redemption is storytelling at its most evocative and compassionate. This is a novel that transcends politics and class, its characters as accessible and intimate as those of universal mythology.
