Winner of the 2007 H,lSne du Coudray Undergraduate Novel Prize. In the first years of this century, three young people - Anne-Marie, David and Mohammed - try to find their place in a changed world of identity politics, religion, conflict and betrayal. Set against the background first of student life and then Palestine, Israel, and the Balkans, this beautifully written, original and powerful debut novel draws on the poetry of the Song of Songs and the Persian poet Rumi, and asks searching questions about the nature of betrayal, loyalty, and identity, both in our personal lives and in today's troubled world.
