    Tolvårige Yusuf skickas av sina fattiga föräldrar till kusten för att bo hos sin farbror Aziz, en förmögen köpman. Snart går det upp för den oskuldsfulle Yusuf att köpmannen inte alls är Yusufs farbror: i själva verket har han sålts som skuldslav av sin far. Så börjar livets hårda skola för Yusuf. Genom Yusuf får vi uppleva ett Afrika som präglas av stamstrider, vidskeplighet, sjukdomar och barnslaveri, men drömmaren Yusuf får också en skymt av paradisets portar av eld och vatten.Paradiset är en mångbottnad, våldsam, vacker och märklig berättelse med ett poetiskt, skirt och avskalat språk, där perspektivet aldrig viker från den unga huvudpersonens sida. Den är fast förankrad i sin tid och sin miljö, en berättelse som ändå – eller just därför – är djupt allmängiltig.

    Människorna i Den sista gåvan är offer för sina omständigheter, illa tilltygade av den globala migrationens tidvattensvågor, på flykt från sig själva. De är märkta av förlust, skam och rädsla. Med mästarhand skildrar Abdulrazak Gurnah deras rotlöshet, skuldkänslorna gentemot dem som har lämnats kvar, deras längtan efter tillhörighet och deras försök att uppfinna sig själva på nytt. Det här är berättelsen om den sköra gränsen mellan förlust och frihet, mellan gamla svek och nya lojaliteter.Den sista gåvan är Abdulrazak Gurnahs åttonde roman och hans andra på svenska. Här återvänder han till de teman han har utforskat i flera av sina tidigare romaner: exil och skuld.

    Moving from revolutionary Zanzibar in the 1960s to restless London in the 1990s, Gravel Heart is a powerful story of exile, migration and betrayal, from the Booker Prize-shortlisted author of Paradise.Salim has always believed that his father does not want him. Living with his parents and his adored Uncle Amir in a house full of secrets, he is a bookish child, a dreamer haunted by night terrors. It is the 1970s and Zanzibar is changing. Tourists arrive, the island's white sands obscuring the memory of recent conflict: longed-for independence from British colonialism swiftly followed by bloody revolution. When his father moves out, retreating into dishevelled introspection, Salim is confused and ashamed. His mother explains neither this nor her absences with a strange man; silence is layered on silence. When glamorous Uncle Amir, now a senior diplomat, offers Salim an escape, the lonely teenager travels to London for college. But nothing has prepared him for the biting cold and seething crowds of this hostile city. Struggling to find a foothold, and to understand the darkness at the heart of his family, Salim must face devastating truths about himself and those closest to him - and about love, sex and power. Evoking the immigrant experience with unsentimental precision and profound insight, Gravel Heart is a powerfully affecting story of isolation, identity, belonging and betrayal, and is Abulrazak Gurnah's most dazzling achievement.

    Early one morning in 1899, in a small town along the coast from Mombasa, Hassanali sets out for the mosque. But he never gets there, for out of the desert stumbles an ashen and exhausted Englishman who collapses at his feet. That man is Martin Pearce - writer, traveller and something of an Orientalist. After Pearce has recuperated, he visits Hassanali to thank him for his rescue and meets Hassanali's sister Rehana; he is immediately captivated. In this crumbling town on the edge of civilised life, with the empire on the brink of a new century, a passionate love affair begins that brings two cultures together and which will reverberate through three generations and across continents.

    One day, long before the troubles, he slipped away without saying a word to anyone and never went back. And then another day, forty three years later, he collapsed just inside the front door of his house in a small English town. It was late in the day when it happened, on his way home after work, but it was also late in the day altogether. He had left things for too long and there was no one to blame for it but himself.Abbas has never told anyone about his past - before he was a sailor on the high seas, before he met his wife Maryam outside a Boots in Exeter, before they settled into a quiet life in Norwich with their children, Jamal and Hanna. Now, at the age of sixty-three, he suffers a collapse that renders him bedbound and unable to speak about things he thought he would one day have to.Jamal and Hanna have grown up and gone out into the world. They were both born in England but cannot shake a sense of apartness. Hanna calls herself Anna now, and has just moved to a new city to be near her boyfriend. She feels the relationship is headed somewhere serious, but the words have not yet been spoken out loud. Jamal, the listener of the family, moves into a student house and is captivated by a young woman with dark-blue eyes and her own, complex story to tell. Abbas's illness forces both children home, to the dark silences of their father and the fretful capability of their mother Maryam, who began life as a foundling and has never thought to find herself, until now.

    He thinks, as he escapes from Zanzibar, that he will probably never return, and yet the dream of studying in England matters above that. Things do not happen quite as he imagined - the school where he teaches is cramped and violent, he forgets how it feels to belong. But there is Emma, beautiful, rebellious Emma, who turns away from her white, middle-class roots to offer him love and bear him a child. And in return he spins stories of his home and keeps her a secret from his family. Twenty years later, when the barriers at last come down in Zanzibar, he is able and compelled to go back. What he discovers there, in a story potent with truth, will change the entire vision of his life.

    Nobelpristagaren Abdulrazak Gurnahs senaste roman är en omskakande berättelse om krig och kärlek under 1900-talets första decennier.Som liten flicka lämnas föräldralösa Afiya hos en avlägsen släkting när hennes äldre bror tar värvning hos de tyska kolonialtrupperna. Hon växer upp med en bildningstörst, men tvingas foga sig i kvinnans begränsade plats i samhället. Efter kriget återvänder inte brodern. Det gör i stället en annan ung man – Hamza – som såldes till krigsmakten av sin familj och har sårats svårt i kriget. Liksom Afiya kan han läsa, och de båda förälskar sig i varandra på avstånd.Efterliv, den tredje boken av Gurnah att översättas till svenska, är en ömsint och stundtals gastkramande skildring av människor som kämpar för sitt eget värde i skuggan av kolonialismens världsordning.

    While he was still a little boy, Ilyas was stolen from his parents by the German colonial troops. After years away, fighting in a war against his own people, he returns to his village to find his parents gone, and his sister Afiya given away. Another young man returns at the same time. Hamza was not stolen for the war, but sold into it; he has grown up at the right hand of an officer whose protection has marked him life. With nothing but the clothes on his back, he seeks only work and security - and the love of the beautiful Afiya. As fate knots these young people together, as they live and work and fall in love, the shadow of a new war on another continent lengthens and darkens, ready to snatch them up and carry them away

    Yusuf duce o viata linistita cu familia sa într-un orasel din Africa de Est, iar când e înstiintat ca urmeaza sa plece departe de casa primeste vestea senin.
