The Geometry Of God
A NovelBook - 2009 | Multiple languages
Scientist Amal and her blind sister Mehwish, their heretical grandfather Zahoor, and Noman, the young man who changes all their lives: these are the four shifting chambers who make the heart of The Geometry of God, the new novel from lauded Pakistani writer Uzma Aslam Khan. The Geometry of God follows these characters as their lives unfold against the backdrop of General Zias Pakistan, where religious fundamentalists and the mujaheddin (funded by gem sales and the Americans) gather power, and scientists and poets come under threat. This is a book to be savored, as the sisters show us: digging as Amal does toward the novels deepest questions about love and knowledge and faith, moving as Mehwish does to the rhythms of an abundant and original language.
