A 2004 Vacation Reading (selected by The New York Times)
“Farah, a Somali novelist living in South Africa, explores his homeland's disintegration by sending his protagonist, Jeebleh, back to Somaliland, where he tries to find his mother's grave and rescue a kidnapped girl; menace succeeds menace so densely Jeebleh is soon possessed by a spirit of violent vengeance.”

Book description
Returning to Mogadiscio, Somalia, from New York after a twenty-year exile, Jeebleh finds a troubled and devastated city ruled by clan warlords and patrolled by violent gangs of thugs, as he works to settle his late mother's outstanding accounts and aids an old friend whose youngest child has been abducted.
