The Geometry Of GodBook - 2009 | Multiple languages
Scientist Amal and her blind sister Mehwish, and their heretical grandfather Zahoor, and Norman, the young man who changes all their lives-these are the four shifting chambers that make the heart of The Geometry of God, the new novel from lauded Pakistani writer Uzma Aslam Khanh. Geometry of God follows these characters as their lives unfold against the backdrop of General Zia's Pakistan, where religious fundamentalists and the mujaheddin (funded by gem sales and the Americans) gather power, and scientists and poets come under threat. This is a book to be savored, as the sisters show us: digging as Amal does toward the novel's deepest questions about love and knowledge and faith, moving as Mehwish does to the rhythms of an abundant and original language.
