Description

Sixteen-year-old Sashi wants to become a doctor.

But over the next decade, as a vicious civil war tears through her hometown of Jaffna, her dream takes her on a different path as she sees those around her, including her four beloved brothers and their friend, get swept up in violent political ideologies and their consequences.

Desperate to act, she must ask herself: is it possible for anyone to move through life without doing harm?

With immense compassion and deep moral complexity, V.V. Ganeshananthan brings us an achingly moving portrait of individual and societal grief. “I want you to understand,” the narrator of Brotherless Night insists, and by the end of this blazingly brilliant novel, we do: that in a world full of turmoil, human connections and shared stories can teach us how – and as importantly, why – to survive’ Celeste NG

Stunningly great’ – Curtis Sittenfeld

V.V. Ganeshananthan’s novel Brotherless Night reveals the moral nuances of violence, ever belied by black-and-white terminology’ – New York Times
