On a late November afternoon Saleh Omar arrives at Gatwick Airport from Zanzibar, a far away island in the Indian Ocean. With him he has a small bag in which there lies his most precious possession - a mahogany box containing incense. He used to own a furniture shop, have a house and be a husband and father. Now he is an asylum seeker from paradise; silence his only protection. Meanwhile Latif Mahmud, someone intimately connected with Saleh's past, lives quietly alone in his London flat. When Saleh and Latif meet in an English seaside town, a story is unravelled. It is a story of love and betrayal, of seduction and of possession, and of a people desperately trying to find stability amidst the maelstrom of their times.


"From the opening lines you know you're in the hands of a real writer, someone with something to say about the world." -- The Observer, 7th July 2002

"an impressive story" -- Financial Times, 6th July 2002

Achingly good... more than an eloquent novel: a necessary one... urbane, graceful and wholly captivating. -- Sunday Telegraph

An epic unravelling of delicately intertwined stories that criss-cross the globe... astonishing and superb. -- Observer

Marvellously rendered... human beings constantly surprise with being better, tenderer, braver than either they or others have realised. -- Independent on Sunday

One scarcely dares breathe while reading it for fear of breaking the enchantment. -- The Times
