Homebody/Kabul PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Homebody/Kabul free pdf The homebody of the title is a bored but highly intellectual Englishwoman who finds refuge and escape in the alternate world of Afghanistan, exoticised in her mind's eye with the help of an out-of-date guide book. Her mysterious disappearance prompts a search by her ineffectual husband and her emotionally detached daughter, who arrive unprepared for the adventures that await them. In their quest for truth and closure, the lines between the real and unreal- the political and the personal- the public and the private- and, the psychological and the sociological, are intentionally blurred and artfully ambiguous.
