Kabul, Afghanistan. 2021. Taroon, a former U.S. military interpreter, is hiding from the Taliban at his sister’s apartment in the wake of the American troop withdrawal. On the eve of his son’s birth, Taroon is faced with an impossible decision: stay with his family or escape to safety. Sylvia Khoury’s gripping thriller — a 2022 Pulitzer Prize Finalist — is an emotional and poetic family love story about sacrifice and strength discovered under extreme circumstances.
