There are loves that, even when they die out, leave a mark on generations. Especially when they are secret, illegal, condemned. In the Nobel Prize-winning author's masterful novel, such a love affair begins in the heyday of the British Empire and continues to resonate until the aftermath of African independence. One morning in 1899, an Englishman, Martin Pierce, staggers out of the desert into an East African coastal town and collapses at the feet of Hassanali, a local shopkeeper. When Hassanali's sister, the beautiful and frustrated Rhianna, takes care of Pierce, a love affair is born with consequences that will extend into the future when another illicit affair flares up, with equally unpredictable and dramatic consequences. In this poignant and masterfully woven story, Abdulrazak Gurnah brilliantly dramatizes the individual, social and political legacy of colonialism.
