**By the winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature 2021** LONGLISTED FOR THE BOOKER PRIZE 2002 'One scarcely dares breathe while reading it for fear of breaking the enchantment' The Times _______________ On a late November afternoon Saleh Omar arrives at Gatwick Airport from Zanzibar, a far away island in the Indian Ocean. With him he has a small bag in which lies his most precious possession - a mahogany box containing incense. He used to own a furniture shop, have a house and be a husband and father. Now he is an asylum seeker from paradise; silence his only protection. Meanwhile Latif Mahmud, someone intimately connected with Saleh's past, lives quietly alone in his London flat. When Saleh and Latif meet in an English seaside town, a story is unravelled. It is a story of love and betrayal, seduction and possession, and of a people desperately trying to find stability amidst the maelstrom of their times.

  1. Svår engelska
    Gunilla Margareta Wagner, 9 november 2021

    Fick slå upp många ord i engelsk-svensk ordbok. Vanligtvis brukar jag klara av detta utan lexikon. Förståeligt då svårighetsnivån är högre hos nobelpristagare!
