Moshen and his wife, Zunaira, met at university and once looked forward to a happy life together. Yasmina Khadra's novel weaves together the stories of Moshen and Zunaira and two others who live with the knowledge that pleasure is sin and that death has become a mere banality under the rule of the Taliban.
