    DescriptionWinner of the 2011 Commonwealth Writers' Prize for Best Book. In the capital hospital of a war-devastated Sierra Leone, a gifted young surgeon is plagued by demons. Elsewhere in the hospital lies a man who was young during the country's turbulent postcolonial years. As past and present intersect in the buzzing city, they are drawn unwittingly closer by a British psychiatrist, and into the path of one woman at the center of their stories. A work of extraordinary writing and rare wisdom, The Memory of Love seamlessly weaves together the lives of these three men to create a powerful story of loss, absolution, and the indelible effects of the past and, at the end of it all, the very nature of love.
