WHEN BLACKBIRDS FLY

‘I have zero interest in politics or in any place outside our little town.’

Life is sweet growing up in Aizawl, with his family and friends, and all the narrator wants is a peaceful life. But the independence movement in Mizoram means that regardless of what he wants, he is drawn inexorably into a world where everyone has to choose where they stand …

Set in the initial stages of the two-decade-long struggle for Mizoram’s independence and against the backdrop of the 1966 bombing of Aizawl, this stunning debut novel is an universal story of how individual dreams and lives are shattered when larger conflicts arise.

WANTING MOR

How will she survive in an alien city?

When Jameela’s mother dies, she is left alone with her distant, moody father. He decides they will leave their small village in Afghanistan and start a new life in Kabul. Here Jameela struggles to deal with a strange culture, unfamiliar people and a new, hostile family.

Alone and vulnerable in the war-ravaged city, can Jameela find friendship, acceptance and hope?

This powerful and touching novel, by renowned Pakistani-Canadian author Rukhsana Khan, was inspired by a true story.
