"A startlingly authentic voice"—Daily Telegraph

As a young man in the early 1960s, Amir leaves his small village in Pakistan to come to Britain as an illegal alien. Thirty years on, Amir has a home and a family, including Parvin, his nineteen-year-old daughter. Parvin has a mind of her own. As Amir and Parvin battle, Amir remembers a brutal crime of passion which profoundly altered the course of his life. Abdullah Hussein's first novel in English, Emigré Journeys is a powerful work of struggle, alienation and hope.
