Book Description

Book Title: Red Birds

Author Name: Mohammed Hanif

An American pilot crash lands in the desert and takes refuge in the camp which he was supposed to bomb. Visualizing palm trees and worrying about dehydrating to death isn’t what Major Ellie expected from this mission. Still, it’s an improvement on the constant squabbles with his wife back home.

Unfortunately, in the camp, teenager Momo’s money-making schemes are failing. His brother left for his first day at work and never returned, his parents are at each other’s throats, his dog is having a very bad day. Moreover, an aid worker has shown up wanting to research him for her book on the Teenage Muslim Mind.

Written with his trademark wit, a keen eye for improbability and telling important truths about the world today.
