A couple’s tranquil life abroad is irrevocably transformed by the arrival of their son’s widow and children, in the latest from Somalia’s most celebrated novelist.

For decades, Gacalo and Mugdi have lived in Oslo, where they’ve led a peaceful, largely assimilated life and raised two children. Their beloved son, Dhaqaneh, however, is driven by feelings of alienation to jihadism in Somalia, where he kills himself in a suicide attack. The couple reluctantly offers a haven to his family. But on arrival in Oslo, their daughter-in-law cloaks herself even more deeply in religion, while her children hunger for the freedoms of

their new homeland, a rift that will have lifealtering consequences for the entire family.

Set against the backdrop of real events, North of Dawn is a provocative, devastating story of love, loyalty, and national identity that asks whether it is ever possible to escape a legacy of violence—and if so, at what cost.

Story Locale: Oslo, Norway

Nuruddin Farah is the author of eleven previous novels, which have been translated into more than twenty languages and won numerous awards, including the Neustadt International Prize for Literature. He lives in Cape Town, South Africa.

Praise for North of Dawn:

“As one of the characters puts it, "Art is a humanizer," and Farah's insistence on isolating the humanity in even the most difficult characters is a beacon of hope against fear and loathing.”--Kirkus (starred)

“Farah’s entire body of work has been a testament to his country’s divisions and ultimate collapse in the wake of civil war in 1991 … In typical Farah fashion, everyone’s fate is bound together and no one is left unscathed by the ravages of extremism.” --Vanity Fair

Praise for Hiding in Plain Sight

"Takes us deep into the domestic life of a sophisticated African family, with great emotional effect." --Alan Cheuse, NPR

"Absorbing and provocative." (4 stars) --USA Today

"The rewards of reading Hiding in Plain Sight lie in Farah's sensitive exploration of grief and his depiction of a family's love for one another." --The New York Times Book Review
