Summary
In 2006, after his father was killed, Gulwali Passarlay was caught between the Taliban who wanted to recruit him, and the Americans who wanted to use him. To protect her son, Gulwali's mother sent him away. The search for safety would lead the twelve-year-old across eight countries, from the mountains of eastern Afghanistan through Iran and Europe to Britain. Over the course of twelve harrowing months, Gulwali endured imprisonment, hunger, cruelty, brutality, loneliness, and terror and nearly drowned crossing the Mediterranean Sea before being granted asylum in England. In The Lightless Sky, Gulwali recalls his experience and offers a firsthand look at pressing issues of the modern refugee crisis
