About the Author:
Born in Turin in 1972, Fabio Geda is an Italian novelist who works with children in difficulties. He writes for several Italian magazines and newspapers, and teaches creative writing in the most famous Italian school of storytelling (Scuola Holden, in Turin). This is his first book to be translated into English.

The story is based on a young boy called Enaiatollah Akbari who was left alone in Pakistan at the age of ten. He managed to claim political asylum when he arrived in Italy - at the age of fifteen! - after his five year long journey. Geda quickly befriended him. This novel follows his story...
