In her first novel, Brothers presents the unforgettable story of two Afghan brothers and a perilous trek across continents in search of a place to build a life, based on the real-life experiences for the lost boys.
Annotation:
Having worked as a journalist in Afghanistan, Australian writer Caroline Brothers tells a harrowing story of two brave brothers in her first novel, HINTERLAND. Orphaned by Taliban violence, Aryan (age 14) and Kabir (age 8) decide that their best chance for a future lies in the far off land of England. On their way to London, they must travel from Kabul to Tehran, then on to Istanbul and Athens, eventually passing through Rome and Paris before their journey ends. They face extreme conditions on the road, forced labor and sexual violence, and the occasional act of generosity. Based on her own research into the Lost Boys of Afghanistan, as well as Wali Mohammadi's memoir, Brother's fictional tale sheds light on some of the many human-rights atrocities resulting from tyranny, terrorism, and war.

Praise

"[The author] adeptly synthesizes stories gathered as a reporter in France into a forceful account of two prototypical lost boys as they hazard 'the great lottery' of a journey across Europe." - Jan Stuart 04/22/2012
