In Born under a Million Shadows Andrea Busfield does several things well that make this novel work for me First and foremost she effectively conveys a fascination and beauty of a country which in my mind had so far been euated with images of war and burkas Upon reading Fawad s story and those of his friends and family I feel that I ve been properly acuainted with Afghanistan now Busfield is a journalist who has traveled to Afghanistan and in her author s notes in the back of the book she writes that during her trips there she encountered Afghan children who helped feed their families by begging from or catering to tourists and other Westerners One little boy in particular Fawad was so charming and intelligent that she decided to name her protagonist after him The Fawad of her book is funny devious very bright and certainly charmed me Through his eyes we see what it means to be an Afghan to possess indomitable spirit and humor in the face of much hardship The story as it unfolds is told from Fawad s perspective and this is where Busfield also succeeds A strong and compelling voice can be hard to pull off in this case Fawad s voice won me over completely My name is Fawad and my mother tells me I was born under the shadow of the Taliban Because she said no I imagined her stepping out of the sunshine and into the dark crouching in a corner to protect the stomach that was hiding me while a man with a stick watched over us ready to beat me into the worldAll of us were born during the time of the Taliban but I only heard my mother talk of them as men making shadows so I

night There are thieves everywhere she would hiss and angry whisper that tied the points of her eyebrows togetherAnd of course she was right I was one of themIt is clear that Busfield writes from experience and a Westerner s love for Afghanistan but she does not skim over the troubling issues which are embodied by the difficult love affair between Georgie the Englishwoman who shelters Fawad and his mother and Haji Khan an enigmatic and powerful Afghan man Both Georgie and Haji Khan are making it their life s work to rebuild Afghanistan They have a shared mission and they love each other passionately but theirs is an impossible situation as they would have to overcome too many cultural and religious obstacles to be with one another In addition to being the emotional touchstone of the story through Fawad we also get a simplified and probably biased view of the politics and modern history of Afghanistan how the Taliban rose to power what happened under their rule and what life is like there today Amazingly Busfield manages to intertwine these complicated issues with the narrative without overwhelming it Born under a Million Shadows immersed me in the culture of modern day
