Summary
Moving from revolutionary Zanzibar in the 1970s to restless London in the 1990s, 'Gravel Heart' is a powerful story of exile, migration and betrayal, from the Booker Prize-shortlisted author of 'Paradise Salim' has always believed that his father does not want him. Living with his parents and his adored Uncle Amir in a house full of secrets, he is a bookish child, a dreamer haunted by night terrors. It is the 1970s and Zanzibar is changing. Tourists arrive, the island's white sands obscuring the memory of recent conflict: longed-for independence from British colonialism swiftly followed by bloody revolution
