About this product
- DescriptionRashid is a young German of mixed Muslim Indian and German heritage, whose journey to his father's country to claim his inheritance leads to a tragic twist of fate when he is captured and deported to Guantanamo Bay. What ensues is a remarkable literary experiment, a fictitious text based on meticulous research which describes the life of a prisoner of the camp with an introspective voice that is both sensitive yet utterly without sentimentality.
