Links by Nuruddin Farah

Book Description

Gripping, provocative, and revelatory, Links is a novel that will stand as a classic of modern world literature. Jeebleh is returning to Mogadiscio, Somalia, for the first time in twenty years. But this is not a nostalgia trip his last residence there was a jail cell. And who could feel nostalgic for a city like this? U.S. troops have come and gone, and the decimated city is ruled by clan warlords and patrolled by qaat-chewing gangs who shoot civilians to relieve their adolescent boredom. Diverted in his pilgrimage to visit his mother s grave, Jeebleh is asked to investigate the abduction of the young daughter of one of his closest friend s family. But he learns quickly that any act in this city, particularly an act of justice, is much more complicated than he might have imagined."
