Description

Fatima Bhutto's stunning fiction debut begins and ends one rain swept Friday morning in Mir Ali, a small town in the troubled tribal region of Waziristan, close to the Afghan border. Three brothers meet for breakfast. Soon after, the eldest, recently returned from America, hails a taxi to the local mosque.

The second brother, a doctor, goes to check in at his hospital. His troubled wife does not join the family that morning for no one knows where Mina goes these days. And the youngest, the idealist, leaves for town on a motorbike. Seated behind him is a beautiful, fragile girl whose world has been overwhelmed by war.

Three hours later their day will end in devastating circumstances. The Shadow of the Crescent Moon chronicles the lives of people trying to live and love in a world on fire. Beautifully written, full of emotion and heartbreak, this is an extraordinary novel.
