Beschreibung

LONGLISTED FOR THE WOMEN''S PRIZE 2022br>A REESE WITHERSPOON BOOK CLUB PICKbr>SHORTLISTED FOR THE COSTA NOVEL AWARD 2021br>br>A rich, magical new novel from the Booker-shortlisted author of 10 Minutes 38 Seconds in this Strange World - now a top ten Sunday Times bestsellerbr>br>It is 1974 on the island of Cyprus. Two teenagers, from opposite sides of a divided land, meet at a tavern in the city they both call home. The tavern is the only place that Kostas, who is Greek and Christian, and Defne, who is Turkish and Muslim, can meet, in secret, hidden beneath the blackened beams from which hang garlands of garlic, chilli peppers and wild herbs. This is where one can find the best food in town, the best music, the best wine. But there is something else to the place: it makes one forget, even if for just a few hours, the world outside and its immoderate sorrows.br>br>In the centre of the tavern, growing through a cavity in the roof, is a fig tree. This tree will witness their hushed, happy meetings, their silent, surreptitious departures; and the tree will be there when the war breaks out, when the capital is reduced to rubble, when the teenagers vanish and break apart.br>br>Decades later in north London, sixteen-year-old Ada Kazantzakis has never visited the island where her parents were born. Desperate for answers, she seeks to untangle years of secrets, separation and silence. The only connection she has to the land of her ancestors is a Ficus Carica growing in the back garden of their home.br>br>In The Island of Missing Trees, prizewinning author Elif Shafak brings us a rich, magical tale of belonging and identity, love and trauma, nature, and, finally, renewal.br>br>''What a wonderful read! This book moved me to tears... in the best way. Powerful and poignant'' Reese Witherspoonbr>br>''A brilliant novel -- one that rings with Shafak''s characteristic compassion for the overlooked and the under-loved, for those whom history has exiled, excluded or separated. I know it will move many readers around the world, as it moved me'' Robert Macfarlanebr>br>''A wonderfully transporting and magical novel that is, at the same time, revelatory about recent history and the natural world and quietly profound'' William Boydbr>br>''This is an enchanting, compassionate and wise novel and storytelling at its most sublime'' Polly Samsonbr>br>''A wise novel of love and grief, roots and branches, displacement and home, faith and belief. THE ISLAND OF MISSING TREES is balm for our bruised times'' David Mitchellbr>br>''An outstanding work of breathtaking beauty'' Lemn Sissaybr>br>''A writer of important, beautiful, painful, truthful novels'' Marian Keyesbr>br>''Lovely heartbreaker of a novel centered on dark secrets of civil wars & evils of extremism: Cyprus, star-crossed lovers, killed beloveds, damaged kids. Uprootings. (One narrator is a fig tree!)'' Margaret Atwood on Twitterbr>br>''Elif Shafak is a unique and powerful voice in world literature'' Ian McEwan>
