Review:

"Farah takes his well-deserved place beside Chinua Achebe and V. S. Naipaul. . . . He writes of the country lost to him with passion and pain, in a voice that is lyrical and incisively intelligent."

Nuruddin Farah, the most important African novelist to emerge in the past twenty-five years. ("The New York Review of Books") It's easy to see why Nuruddin Farah's name keeps coming up as a likely recipient of a Nobel Prize in Literature. ("Newsweek")

Book Description Penguin Putnam Inc, United States, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 201 x 135 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Gripping, provocative, and revelatory, Links is a novel that will stand as a classic of modern world literature. Jeebleh is returning to Mogadiscio, Somalia, for the first time in twenty years. But this is not a nostalgia trip--his last residence there was a jail cell. And who could feel nostalgic for a city like this? U.S. troops have come and gone, and the decimated city is ruled by clan warlords and patrolled by qaat-chewing gangs who shoot civilians to relieve their adolescent boredom. Diverted in his pilgrimage to visit his mother s grave, Jeebleh is asked to investigate the abduction of the young daughter of one of his closest friend s family. But he learns quickly that any act in this city, particularly an act of justice, is much more complicated than he might have imagined. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9780143034841
