Tells the lives of five people who come together in post-9/11 Afghanistan. Marcus, an English doctor whose progressive, outspoken Afghani wife was murdered by the Taliban, opens his home--itself an eerily beautiful monument to his losses--to the others: Lara, from St. Petersburg, looking for evidence of her soldier brother who disappeared decades before during the Soviet invasion; David, an American, a former spy who has seen his ideals turned inside out during his twenty-five years in Afghanistan; Casa, a young Afghani whose hatred of the West plunges him into the depths of zealotry; and James, the Special Forces soldier in whom David sees a dangerous revival of the unquestioning notions of right and wrong that he himself once held

Jeo and Mikal are foster brothers from a small town in Pakistan.

Season of the rainbirds by Nadeem Aslam( Book )
20 editions published between 1993 and 2013 in English and Hebrew and held by 396 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"--

Der Garten des Blinden : [Roman] by Nadeem Aslam( Book )
3 editions published in 2014 in German and held by 14 libraries worldwide
Pakistan in den Monaten nach dem 11. September: Jeo ist mit Naheed, der grossen Liebe seines Lebens, verheiratet, die auch sein Adoptivbruder Mikal begehrt. Als Jeo sich auf den Weg macht, in Afghanistan verwundeten Zivilisten zu helfen, begleitet Mikal ihn, doch ein Komplott führt die beiden unversehens zwischen die Fronten, Jeo stirbt, und Mikal gerät in Gefangenschaft. Auch in das Leben der Familie zu Hause bricht der Krieg ein. Ihr Vater Rohan, gläubiger Muslim und Gründer einer liberalen Schule, sieht sein Lebenswerk durch Fundamentalisten bedroht, und Naheed tut alles, um die mühsam erkämpfte Freiheit der Frauen nicht wieder zu verlieren. Sie trauert um Jeo, gibt aber die Hoffnung nicht auf, dass Mikal eines Tages zurückkehrt. Ebenso schonungslos wie poetisch beschreibt der vielfach ausgezeichnete Autor Nadeem Aslam in 'Der Garten des Blinden' eine sehr gegenwärtige, dabei zeitlose Welt um Liebe und Krieg, Verlust und Verrat und um die tiefsten Beweggründe menschlichen Handelns. Nadeem Aslam wurde 1966 in Gujranwala, Pakistan, geboren und musste mit 14 Jahren das Land wegen des Widerstands seines Vaters gegen das Zia-Regime verlassen. Er studierte in England Biochemie und Literatur und lebt heute in London als Schriftsteller. Nadeem Aslams Romane wurden vielfach ausgezeichnet; 'Atlas für verschollene Liebende' wurde u.a. für den renommierten Booker-Preis nominiert. Seine Bücher erscheinen in einem Dutzend Länder. 'Der Garten des Blinden' ist sein vierter Roman und steht auf der shortlist für den DSC Prize for South Asian Literature 2014
