Mahir Guven’s prizewinning first novel is a blistering account of two French-Syrian brothers, growing into adulthood in a hostile Paris that offers them little in the way of opportunity. The story draws on the War in Syria as well as the repercussions from the Charlie Hebdo and Bataclan attacks, both local and global. The tension builds almost imperceptibly throughout and you are kept guessing till the final page in this story of family, loss, betrayal and the search for meaning. A very worthy Prix Goncourt winner.
