Abstract:

Half-German, half-Indian, Rashid, age twenty, travels to India, just after the Afghan war, to claim the inheritance of his grandmother. En route, he befriends a young Afghan, and continues his journey to Peshawar where he finds himself in an anti-American demonstration. He is arrested, handed over to U.S. troops, and taken to Guantanamo. Characterized as "one of the best, if not the best German novels since the dawn of the new millennium," by the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Guantanamo is a modern prison novel in the classic style, an implicit indictment of the Guantanamo gulag, and a novel of fierce moral and descriptive clarity. -- BOOK JACKET.
