'A wondrous book. It left me hopeful; this is its gift' Elizabeth Strout
'An empathy engine… It is, itself, an agent of change' New York Times Book Review
'A quite extraordinary novel' Kamila Shamsie
How do we continue living once we have lost our reason to live?
Rami and Bassam live in the city of Jerusalem — but exist worlds apart, divided by an age-old conflict. And yet they have one thing in common. Both are fathers; both are fathers of daughters — and both daughters are now lost.
When Rami and Bassam meet, and tell one another the story of their grief, the most unexpected thing of all happens: they become best of friends. And their stories become one story, a story with the power to heal — and the power to change the world.
'The book goes anywhere and everywhere. It is a delirious and thrilling improvisation, a jazz solo spun out of that meeting … A spectacular structure of stories about everything' Bryan Appleyard, Sunday Times

    👍Worth reading

    Meget innovativ bog i sin måde at fortælle historier. Klart den bedste bog jeg har læst længe.
    Den tager udgangspunkt i to mænds tab af deres døtre. Den ene jødisk israel og den anden muslimsk palæstinenser. Meget rørerende og inspirerende.
    Springer i tiden men det fungerer overraskende godt.
