9780099499275: The Attack

Tel Aviv. A suicide bomber has killed 19 in a packed city centre restaurant. Dr Amin Jaafie, an Israeli Arab, is a surgeon at a nearby hospital. Respected and admired by his colleagues, the doctor represents integration at its most successful. But this night of turmoil and death takes a horrifyingly personal turn as his beloved wife's body is found among the dead... could she have caused the devestation?

From the graphic, shocking description of the bombing that opens the novel to its searing conclusion, The Attack portrays the reality of terrorism and its costs. Intense and humane, thoughtful, sensitive and heartfelt, it displays a profound understanding of that which can seem incomprehensible.

Review:

"A powerful and thought-provoking novel" ( Guardian)

"A moving, often troubling exploration of faith, self-belief and identity... The writing has a rare courage. This is a novel from a skilled storyteller working at the height of his powers" ( Times Literary Supplement)

"Khadra has an easy-going style, and tailors his discussions of the Arab-Israeli conflict to the form of a thriller. The fuse lit at the beginning of the novel crackles through the story to its clever destination" (James Francken Daily Telegraph)

"Khadra is a passionately moral writer, but he rarely sits in judgement... A magnificent novel, believable and moving" ( Literary Review)

"The characters are not mere mouthpieces - above all else, this is a novel about a man who feels himself betrayed. Amin Jaafie's very human drama is the heart of this thoughtful and affecting work" (Kamila Shamsie New Statesman)

From the Publisher:

A strikingly powerful novel exploring the motivations of a suicide bomber in Israel, told through the eyes of her husband. By the IMPAC shortlisted author of The Swallows of Kabul ('A writer who can understand man wherever he is' New York Times).
