Author : Nuruddin farah
Genre :African Fiction
Jeebleh is returning to visit his mother's grave and to settle her outstanding accounts-but more urgently, the youngest member of his oldest friend's family has been abducted. Though they have not seen each other in two decades, Jeebleh knows from their childhood that his friend-a virtual brother, who remained in Somalia when Jeebleh left-will need Jeebleh to step in. Jeebleh is determined to cut through the swirling violence and corruption to rescue the little girl-and, perhaps, a piece of his own identity.
Gripping, provocative, and revelatory, Links is the finest work yet from Farah, a novel that will secure his place in the international literary firmament and stand as a classic of modern world literature.
