The Blind Man's Garden

Love is not consolation, it is light.´

From the author of Maps for Lost Lovers comes a searing, exquisitely written novel set in Pakistan and Afghanistan in the months following 9/11 - a story of war, of one family´s losses, and of the simplest, most enduring human impulses.

Jeo and Mikal, foster-brothers from a small Pakistani city, secretly enter Afghanistan: not to fight with the Taliban, but to help and care for wounded civilians. But it soon becomes apparent that good intentions can´t keep them out of harm´s way...

From the wilds of Afghanistan to the heart of the family left behind - their blind father haunted for years by the death of his wife, by the mistakes he may have made in the name of Islam and nationhood, Jeo´s steadfast wife and her superstitious mother - Aslam´s prose takes us on an extraordinary journey.
