Overview

Nominated for the 2017 White Pine Award

Nominated for the 2017 International Dublin Literary Award

In an unnamed and war-torn country, twin brothers Amed and Aziz live in the sanctuary of the family's orange grove. But when a bomb comes from "the other side of the mountain" and kills their grandparents, their father must choose how to best avenge his parents' death, with tragic and unforseen consequences.

Morally complex and completely unforgettable, Larry Tremblay's best-selling The Orange Grove offers up a tragic fable about the absurd logic of terrorism, the power of brotherly love, and the hope for peace in a broken world.

Reviews

Praise for The Orange Grove

"Readers will be uncomfortably stirred by this poignant novel about the haunting effects of war ... This is a tale of the innumerable tragedies of war—bereavement, brainwashing, aftermath—told with the lyricism of an epic parable or fairytale, one the reader will not soon forget."Publishers Weekly
