As they prepare to celebrate Christmas, three young boys struggle to come to terms with their mother's death at the hands of radical terrorists and learn from their grandmother the full account of who they really are.

From the Publisher:

"...a brilliant book...very real and terribly distressing." – A.S. Byatt

"This quite extraordinary book has the intense, deeply focused power of cultural meditation, on certain themes of suffering, of childhood and family, triumphant in this almost unbearable world." – New York Times Book Review
