by | Read by Hisham Matar

Fiction • 13.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Narrating his novel, Hisham Matar gives the story of love, loss, and exile during political turmoil a melancholy undertone and a delicate cadence. Khaled is a young Libyan man whose love of the written word takes him to the UK for further studies. But even far from home, he cannot remain unaffected by the rumblings of the Arab Spring. This is a lyrical journey into the ties that both bind and tear us apart. Khaled confronts conflicting feelings of wanting both justice and the safety of his family and of finding his childhood muse while on the cusp of becoming an adult. Fans of international literature will sink into this complex, layered story as told by a passionate narrator. M.R. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2024]
