BESKRIVELSE:
From the winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature 2021! Longlisted for the Orwell Prize for Political Fiction 2021, longlisted for the Walter Scott Prize 2021. While he was still a little boy, Ilyas was stolen from his parents by the German colonial troops. After years away, fighting in a war against his own people, he returns to his village to find his parents gone, and his sister Afiya given away. Another young man returns at the same time. Hamza was not stolen for the war, but sold into it; he has grown up as the right hand of an officer whose protection has marked him for life. With nothing but the clothes on his back, he seeks only work and security - and the love of the beautiful Afiya. The century is young. The Germans and the British and the French and the Belgians and whoever else have drawn their maps and signed their treaties and divided up Africa. As they seek complete dominion they are forced to extinguish revolt after revolt by the colonised. The conflict in Europe opens another arena in east Africa where a brutal war devastates the landscape. As fate knots these young people together, as they live and work and fall in love, the shadow of a new war on another continent lengthens and darkens, ready to snatch them up and carry them away ...
