Editorial Reviews


Talwar's novel set in modern-day Afghanistan takes a volatile topic--a jihadist preparing to attack a guesthouse in Kabul--and explores the characters involved with empathy and insight.

The novel--which is thematically reminiscent of Khaled Hosseini's The Kite Runner--isn't so much about war, but about the consequences of war.

Deeply disturbing but also moving; will haunt readers long after the last page.

Kirkus Review


The Sentimental Terrorist
is set the night before an actual terror attack in a guest house for foreign aid workers in Kabul, in September 2009. This is a powerful book, and one that will satisfy even the most seasoned observer of Afghanistan's compelling role in world affairs.

The story is not just about terrorism and war; it is also about love--or three love stories, to be more accurate. While Kabul may not be Verona, Talwar's tale is Shakespearean at its heart.
