This is a profoundly moving and eloquent look into the minds of two immigrants, two "others", who have left one home by the sea and gone halfway around the world to take up residence in another. Abdulrazak Gurnah, whose novel Paradise was short-listed for the prestigious Booker Prize, has created a stunning and elegiac look at a world where imperialism opens boundaries -- only to close off borders.
