Jeebleh is returning to Mogadiscio, Somalia, for the first time in twenty years. But this is not a nostalgic trip –his last residence there was a jail cell.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.
He quickly learns that any act in this city, particularly an act of justice, is much more complicated than he might have imagined. Gripping, provocative, and revelatory, Links is a novel that will stand as a classic of modern world literature.
