Set in Pakistan, the novella opens with our narrator – recently released from prison – rescued from a ditch by the kind and scholarly, Abbas, who encourages him to reenter the world of the living. To do this, the narrator walks, everyday, to visit his family’s former orchard where he last experienced peaceful hope before his soul was, quite literally, shattered.

Great for:

• Readers of poetic, literary fiction.
• Those who don’t mind dark themes and ideas.
• Novella lovers.
