Richard McCann, author of Mother of Sorrows

“Here it is, the vast and brilliant debut novel of our time for which readers have been waiting…[It is] deeply penetrating and profoundly intimate, as if made by a muralist whose heart belongs to the details. In the Light of What We Know is a novel of startling vision…Who’s the true heir to such greats as George Orwell and V.S. Naipaul? It’s Zia Haider Rahman.”
