Beautifully-written, heart-breaking, suspenseful, impossible to put down. Hisham Matar's The Return follows the author's quest to find out the fate of his father -- a vocal critic of the Gaddafi regime in Libya, taken from his home with the cooperation of Egyptian police. Although this story has strains of political intrigue, it will resonate personally with anyone who has experienced grief. This book, like few others, really does have something for everyone.
