The Collaborator by Mirzaz Waheed
Published: London, Penguin Viking, 2011
First edition, first printing. Signed and dated by the author. Fine paperback original.
A novel set in the troubled world of Kashmir. The book is set in the early 1990ís, but the issues in Kashmir remain. The author was brought up in the borderland area between India and Pakistan and knows its tragic history only too well. Now living and working in London as a BBC radio Journalist, Mirza Waheedís narrative follows the teenage collaborator of the novelís title as he finds himself trying to understand the circumstances that have seen him doing the enemyís dirty work for them.
"Devastating debut novel", Kamil Shamsie, The Guardian.
"Waheed writes with a melancholy lyricism that is in sharp contrast to the jarring, gruesome realities he describes. It is a dogged, yet beautifully realised account of horror, grief and the psychological trauma of war", Mary Fitzgerald, The Observer.
"A powerful debut", Anthony Cummins, The Sunday Times.
Price: £ 15.00
