Shadow City: A Woman Walks Kabul

by Taran Khan - £9.99  Vintage Publishing (2021)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781784708023 | ISBN 10: 178470802x

One of the first things I was told when I arrived in Kabul was never to walk...
 
When journalist Taran Khan arrives in Kabul, she uncovers a place that defies her expectations.
 
Her wanderings with other Kabulis reveal a fragile city in a state of flux: stricken by near-constant war, but flickering with the promise of peace; governed by age-old codes but experimenting with new modes of living. Her walks take her to the unvisited tombs of the dead, and to the land of the living - like the booksellers, archaeologists, film-makers and entrepreneurs who are remaking this 3,000-year-old city.
 
And as NATO troops begin to withdraw from the country, Khan watches the cycle of transformation begin again.
