Description: Set over two decades of convulsive change, Noon is the moving story of Rehan Tabassum, a young man whose heart is split across two cultures' troubled divide. Rehan's mother and her new husband are the embodiment of a dazzling, emergent India. Yet as the old, muted order of dust and shortages recedes, Rehan finds himself unmoored. With his father still a powerful shadow across the border in Pakistan, Rehan's journey begins: through lands of sudden wealth and hidden violence, in an atmosphere of political quicksand and moral danger, towards the centre of a dark, shifting world. Noon is a startling and incisive novel from a brilliant young writer, uniquely placed to bear witness to some of the most urgent questions of our times.
