Tells the lives of five people who come together in post-9/11 Afghanistan.

The golden legend by Nadeem Aslam( Book )
17 editions published in 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 572 libraries worldwide
"A brave, timely, searingly beautiful novel from the acclaimed author of The Blind Man's Garden: set in contemporary Pakistan, the story of a Muslim widow and her Christian neighbors whose community is consumed by violent religious intolerance When shots ring out on the Grand Trunk Road, Nargis's life begins to crumble around her. Her husband, Massud--a fellow architect--is caught in the cross fire and dies before she can confess her greatest secret to him. Now under threat from a powerful military intelligence officer, who demands that she pardon her husband's American killer, Nargis fears that the truth about her past will soon be exposed. For weeks someone has been broadcasting people's secrets from the minaret of the local mosque, and, in a country where even the accusation of blasphemy is a currency to be bartered, the mysterious broadcasts have struck fear in Christians and Muslims alike. When the loudspeakers reveal a forbidden romance between a Muslim cleric's daughter and Nargis's Christian neighbor, Nargis finds herself trapped in the center of the chaos tearing their community apart. In his characteristically luminous prose, Nadeem Aslam has given us a lionhearted novel that reflects Pakistan's past and present in a single mirror, a story of corruption, resilience, and the disguises that are sometimes necessary for survival--a revelatory portrait of the human spirit"--
Season of the rainbirds by Nadeem Aslam( Book )
32 editions published between 1993 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 388 libraries worldwide
"From the author of Maps for Lost Lovers: Aslam's exquisite first novel, the powerful story of a secluded Pakistani village after the murder of its corrupt and prominent judge. Judge Anwar's murder sets the people of the village on edge. Their anxieties are compounded when a sack of letters, thought lost in a train crash nineteen years ago, suddenly reappears under mysterious circumstances. What secrets will these letters bring to light? Could the letters shed any light on Judge Anwar's murder? As Aslam traces the murder investigation over the next eleven days, he explores the impact that these two events have on the town's inhabitants--from Judge Anwar's surviving family to the journalist reporting on the delivery of the mail packet. With masterful attention to detail and beautiful scenes that set the rhythms of daily life in Pakistan, Aslam creates a lush and timeless world--played out against an ominous backdrop of religious tensions, assassinations, changing regimes, and faraway civil wars"--
