ISBN / GTIN-13 : 9781841155838
Awarded both the Orange Prize for Fiction and PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction.
Somewhere in South America, at the home of the country's vice president, a lavish birthday party is being held in honour of the powerful businessman Mr. Hosokawa. Roxane Coss, opera's most revered soprano, has mesmerized the international guests with her singing.
It is a perfect evening - until a band of gun-wielding terrorists takes the entire party hostage.
But what begins as a panicked, life-threatening scenario slowly evolves into something quite different, a moment of great beauty, as terrorists and hostages forge unexpected bonds and people from different continents become compatriots, intimate friends, and lovers.
