Product description

Review

A tender, powerful and richly embroidered novel from a courageous storyteller.
From Karachi's slums to England's promises, (through connected cities and intersecting destinies), Bhutto's new novel will move you with its profound wisdom and sharp grasp of our turbulent times. Behind The Runaways, there is clearly a brilliant mind and a generous heart at work.

(Elif Shafak)

Every page of this is priceless. I can't think of a better guide through the world we live in. I've never used the word "transformative" before, but I just did now. (Gary Shteyngart)

A powerful and moving book. It is a book that anyone rushing to condemn young people for being radicalised should read. (Anne Youngson, author of 'Meet Me at the Museum')

As compassionate as it is trenchant, this rare fiction is an illuminating guide through the great disorder of our times. (Pankaj Mishra, author of 'Age of Anger')

Dazzling . . . a novel that holds up to scrutiny a world of claustrophobic war zones, virulent social media and cities collapsing upon themselves, and then sets it down again, transformed by the grace of storytelling (Siddartha Deb, author of 'The Point of Return')

Bhutto's heady narrative flits through time and space with a sense of urgency, tracing three disparate young lives, each drawn into the realms of radicalisation, amid the dust of the Iraqi desert (Vogue)

The themes of radicalism (of all sorts) is a thread that runs through the lives of the characters representing the complexity of ideology and the perpetual human search for meaning. Eloquent and erudite...a treat to read (Rafia Zakaria, author of 'The Upstairs Wife')

The Runaways is a book we should all read for it holds up a clear mirror to the way societies in many parts of the world are shaping, moulding, distorting and deforming the young. It is a book we all need. (Jerry Pinto, author of 'Em and the Big Hoom')

A big-hearted, beautiful novel. I read it with awe. Fatima Bhutto has an unflinching eye and a unique voice. (Mohammed Hanif, author of 'A Case of Exploding Mangoes')

A shocking, moving and deeply compassionate novel (Vogue)
