This stunning and wildly successful debut novel vividly captures the colour and complexity of modern Afghanistan. Sir Alexander Burnes, feeling quite confident, lived outside the cantonment, in a house in Kabul.

This area is a part of the much larger Central Asian Steppefrom which it is separated by the Amu Darya. Dost Mohammed was toppled as the Afghan leader, and the British installed Shah Shuja, who had been driven from power decades earlier.
