Justifiably short-listed for the Whitbread prize.
Beirut, July 2006.
Covering some serious subjects in a sometimes incidental and light-hearted way it certainly has the power to keep you up late to finish it.
I couldn't put this book down and have to say that this is the first book that I have read it ages that had such a great story. I have been raving about this book to friends and would recommend this to anyone who loves great characters and a story that is totally unpredictable.
Buy one for yourself and another for your friend!!!
