Hisham Matar

Service95 Recommends is the home of the books we're loving and reviews from our contributors. My Friends by Hisham Matar takes us on a journey alongside two friends struggling to overcome adversity and hostility, delving into themes of loss of innocence, exile, and Libya's recent history.

What We Say: "The Pulitzer Prize-winning author's latest novel is a testament to the power of friendship and the courage to stand up for one's beliefs. Khaled and Mustafa, two Libyan students, find themselves in a world of political turmoil and uncertainty, however, their unwavering determination and willingness to fight for justice take them on a journey that changes their lives forever" – Samantha de Haas

What They Say: “It is impossible to describe the profound depth and beauty of this book. My Friends is a breathtaking novel, every page a miracle and an affirmation. Hisham is one of our greatest writers. How lucky we are to be in his midst” – Maaza Mengiste
