Born in East Africa, Yusuf has few qualms about the journey he is to make. It never occurs to him to ask why he is accompanying Uncle Aziz or why the trip has been organised so suddenly, and he does not think to ask when he will be returning. But the truth is that his 'uncle' is a rich and powerful merchant and Yusuf has been pawned to him to pay his father's debts, Paradise is a rich tapestry of myth, dreams and Biblical and Koranic tradition, the story of a young boy's coming of age against the backdrop of an Africa increasingly corrupted by colonialism and violence.

Gurnah evokes his world in poetic prose which is pure and lucid — a small paradise in itself.’ -- Guardian

Paradise is alive with the unexpected. In it, an obliterated world is enthrallingly retrieved.’ -- Sunday Times

The pleasures, sadnesses and losses in all the shining facets of this book are lingering and exquisite.’ -- Guardian
