Set in Oxford, this incisive novel charts the breakdown of a community. A new mosque is to be built – on the site of a derelict pub. Gradually, half-hidden prejudices begin to surface, and relationships between the residents start to sour.Drawing closely on current affairs, this novel investigates what it means to live in a post 7/7 world, where paranoia, prejudice and fear compete with tolerance and diversity.
