A deep and subtle storyteller -James Wood New Yorker A unique work of fiction bearing witness to much that is unspeakable -Joyce Carrol Dates New York Review of Books The novel I'd hoped Jonathan Franzen's Freedom would be -Alex Preston Observer An investment banker approaching forty in the midst of his career collapsing and marriage unravelling receives a surprise visitor at his West London townhouse. Confronting the dishevelled figure of a South Asian male carrying a backpack the banker recognizes a long-lost college friend. From here the novel takes us on a journey of exhilarating reach and scope ranging over Kabul London New York Islamabad Oxford Princeton and Sylhet and dealing with love philosophy identity finance mathematics cognitive science literature and war. Its framework is an age-old story: the friendship of two men and the betrayal of one by the other. But within this framework the author has touched down on everything important in our young century and has translated all this into his fiction. Set against the breaking of nations and beneath the clouds of economic recession the novel chronicles the lives of people carrying unshakeable legacies of class culture and faith as they struggle to tame their futures and as one man attempts to climb clear of his wrong beginnings. In the Light of What We Know is tender intimate beautifully fluid and surprising. Reading it feels like overhearing a conversation that takes you to places you had only glanced at before.
