Description:

From the author ofMaps for Lost Lovers(0;Extraordinary . . . It deepens our knowledge of life1;-The New York Review of Books), a new novel-at once lyrical and blistering-about war in our time, told through the lives of five people who come together in post-9/11 Afghanistan. Marcus, an English doctor whose Afghani wife was murdered by the Taliban, opens his home-itself an eerily beautiful monument to his losses-to the others: Lara, from St. Petersburg, looking for evidence of her soldier brother who disappeared decades before in the Soviet invasion; David, an American and former spy who has seen his ideals turned inside out; Casa, a young Afghani whose hatred of the West plunges him into the depths of zealotry; and James, the Special Forces soldier in whom David sees a dangerous revival of the unquestioning notions of right and wrong that he himself once held. In mesmerizing prose, Aslam reveals the complex ties-of love and desperation, pain and salvation, madness and clarity-that bind these individuals. And through their stories he gives us a portrait both timely and achingly intimate of the 0;continuation of wars1; that shapes our world. In its radiant language and unflinching drama,The Wasted Vigilis a luminous work of fiction.
