Two young boys cross a river in the middle of the night. The river is also a border, and their lives depend on this journey. With nothing but the clothes on their back, Aryan and his little brother Kabir travel by truck, boat, train, bus and on foot across a Europe they desperately hope will offer them a future they can no longer wait for in Afghanistan. Kabul-Tehran-Istanbul-Athens-Rome-Paris-London - this is the route they cling to, the mantra they repeat in their prayers, and the only option they can see before them. Hinterland is the story of two ordinary brothers whose courageous gamble for a better life brings home the devastating human consequences of war.

Review:

A heart-wrenching story of two young brothers on a long, hard road; a story that all of us should read * Barbara Trapido * Heart-wrenching ... a novel everyone should read * Daily Mail * A moving account ... Brothers' elegant prose holds sentimentality at bay, complimenting some impressive reportage * Financial Times * Visceral and moving * Independent * An illuminating and timely story ... a book that haunts and shames in equal measure * Guardian * Brothers does a fine, gripping job of conveying the immensity and hardship of the journey that many illegal immigrants ... an assured first novel * Metro * Brother's puts a very human face on the migrant children's story in her debut novel ... tragic but beautifully told * Courier Mail *
