The Little Coffee Shop Of Kabul

by Deborah Rodriguez

rrp $32.95

This is the second novel set in Kabul by Deborah Rodriguez, the first was

the much-enjoyed Kabul Beauty School, and 2011’s Little Coffee Shop Of

Kabul is no less a treat.

Once again, the story is set around the dangerous hub of Kabul, where flying bullets and falling rubble is a part of everyone’s day as much as the ritual of morning coffee.  The story centers on five enigmatic women with individual secrets and troubles who meet at the coffee shop, run by the indomitable Sunny.

There’s young Yasmina, alone and pregnant, Isabel, the journalist, Candace, the rich American pursuing an Afghan lover, and Halajan, the 60 year old matriarch-type figure who has lived through many terrible events.

Whilst an engaging and hugely delightful novel, full of well-written and and intelligent prose, this is no mere throw-away book group read.  The author does not shy away from the horrors of life in a war-torn, ravaged and starving country full of frightened and suspicious people.  The strength and love the characters show for each other and fellow Afghans is life-affirming and spiriting, this book will stay with you long after the last page has turned.

While stocks last, each copy comes with a voucher for free coffee at your nearest Jamaica Blue Coffee Shop, to savour with this fine novel.
