Description

Hisham Matar was 19 when his father was kidnapped and taken to prison in Libya. He would never see him again. 22 years later, after the fall of Gaddafi, Hisham was finally able to return to his homeland for the first time. In this heart-breaking, illuminating memoir he describes his return to a country and a family he thought he would never see again. ‘The Return’ is at once a universal and an intensely personal tale of loss. It is an exquisite meditation on history, politics and art. It’s the story of what it is to be human.
