Overview

Ele Pawelski's thought-provoking novella, The Finest Supermarket in Kabul, bursts into the world at the perfect time. Set in Afghanistan in 2011, three divergent characters end up in the same place at the same time when a suicide bomb detonates. Merza, a new and naïve parliamentarian, receives ominous threats after he wins his seat; Alec, an American journalist looks for a scoop on modern daily life in the ravaged capital; Elyssa, a Canadian human rights worker gets unwanted attention from a powerful male magistrate. These three diverse perspectives collide in the dramatic and savage bombing, and are never the same.
