Gripping, provocative, and revelatory, Links is a novel that will stand as a classic of modern world literature. Jeebleh is returning to Mogadiscio, Somalia, for the first time in twenty years. But this is not a nostalgia tripóhis last residence there was a jail cell. And who could feel nostalgic for a city like this? U.S. troops have come and gone, and the decimated city is ruled by clan warlords and patrolled by qaat-chewing gangs who shoot civilians to relieve their adolescent boredom. Diverted in his pilgrimage to visit his motherís grave, Jeebleh is asked to investigate the abduction of the young daughter of one of his closest friendís family. But he learns quickly that any act in this city, particularly an act of justice, is much more complicated than he might have imagined.
