Somewhere in the Middle East, twin brothers have lived peacefully under the shade of the orange trees until, one day, an explosive crosses the sky, killing their grandparents. The horrors of war seize hold of their childhood and crush their destiny. Men come to take vengeance for the blood that has been shed. One of the brothers must wear an explosive belt over the mountains and into a military camp. Who will be the chosen one?

Reviews

Publishers Weekly

‘Readers will be uncomfortably stirred by this poignant novel about the haunting effects of war … This is a tale of the innumerable tragedies of war—bereavement, brainwashing, aftermath—told with the lyricism of an epic parable or fairytale, one the reader will not soon forget.

Elle

‘A little jewel, finely chiseled’

Toronto Sun

‘Larry Tremblay’s ability [is] not so much to weave a storyline as to unravel it with finesse and beauty.’

La Presse

‘A fluid and disturbing fable… Subtle and extraordinary.’

Chatelaine

‘An essential book.
