Product description


Ismail Agha treats the adopted orphan boy Salman as his own son and heir until his wife gives him a son of his own. Then jealousy enters their household and nobody's life is safe. The knives are drawn, and yet even the village gossips can not predict who will be the victim.

From the Back Cover

Ismail Agha treated the adopted orphan boy Salman as his son and heir, the apple of his eye, until his wife gave him a son of his own, Mustafa. Then the green-eyed serpent Jealousy entered the household, and nobody's life was safe. And yet when the knives were drawn none of the village gossips could have predicted who would be the victim.

'In his haunting and vivid novel Kemal draws on his own faith in words to paint a picture of the terrible consequences of erasing difference, of having nothing left but labels.' Lorna Sage, Observer

'Not the least of this novel's facets is its concern with racial tension and prejudice, as dark intensifiers of identity ... Kemal presents us, with beauty and charity, the Kurdish predicament and world-view ... a courageous masterpiece.' Paul Binding, Literary Review
