Hisham Matar was nineteen when his father was kidnapped and taken to prison in Libya. He would never see him again. Twenty-two years later, the fall of Gaddafi meant he was finally able to return to his homeland. The Return is a universal, yet intensely personal tale. It is a meditation on how history and politics can bear down on an individual’s life. It is the story of what it is to be human.
