New novel from the award-winning author of After Before: LONGLISTED for the Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction SHORTLISTED for the Waverton Good Read Award LONGLISTED for the Guardian Not the Booker Prize 'This is a wonderful book. Intriguing, moving, absorbing. It explores universal emotions, and particular feelings. It's also a great read.'-- Daniel Finkelstein, Associate Editor, The Times Chains of Sand is a novel about identity, family, and clashes of culture. He has always been good at tracking down things that are hidden, like cockroaches in his mother's kitchen cupboard, or tunnels in Gaza. At 26, Udi is a veteran of the Israeli army and has killed five men. He wants a new life in a new place. He has a cousin in England. Daniel is 29, a Londoner, an investment banker and a Jew. He wants for nothing, yet he too is unable to escape an intangible yearning for something more. And for less. He looks to Israel for the answer. But as the war with Hamas breaks out, Daniel cannot know that the star-crossed love of a Jewish girl and an Arabic man in Jerusalem a decade earlier, will soon complicate all that he thinks has become clear.
