Pakistani author Fatima Bhutto to release her new book that seeks answers to the questions with about modern Muslim identity in a world aflame with violence in October.
The Runaways has been billed by publisher Penguin Random House India as an explosive new work of fiction. The book spans from Karachi to the nightlife of London, from the dockyards of Portsmouth to the deserts of Mosul.
Three disparate lives will cross paths in the middle of a desert, a place where life and death walk hand-in-hand, and where their closely guarded secrets will force them to make a terrible choice.
“Penguin India has been my home for the past 10 years and I am thrilled that my new novel – a book very close to my heart – will be published by them this October,” says Bhutto, who has penned books like Songs of Blood and Sword and The Shadow of the Crescent Moon.
Meru Gokhale, Editor-in-Chief (Literary Publishing) at Penguin Random House India, says Fatima’s new novel does not shy away from disturbing truths about the world we live in today.
