Description

"I came to the Sahara to be buried."
After witnessing the collapse of the World Trade Centre, Jeehan Nathaar leaves her New York life with her sense of identity fractured and her American dream destroyed. She returns to Morocco to make her home with a family that's not her own. Healed by their kindness but caught up in their troubles, Jeehan struggles to move beyond the pain and confusion of September 11th. On this desiccated landscape, thousands of miles from Ground Zero, the Dune sings of death, love, and forgiveness.

Review quote

`An utterly absorbing read: harrowing and uplifting in equal measure, it sings the music of the heart.'-Maureen Freely; `Poetic... In bringing the two worlds together, this book adds its voice to related works by Khaled Hosseini and Jhumpa Lahiri.'-The Wee Review; `Both precise and lyrical, this novel of epic scope suggests it's through service towards those whom fortune has forsaken that one can truly find peace.'-Fouad Laroui, Prix Goncourt winner; `Rich and gripping... The story that Anissa Bouziane tells with brio inhabits the world between thriller and philosophical tale... A text that is true, precise and without concession.'-Mahi Binebine, short listed for the Prix Renaudot
