The new novel from the Booker-shortlisted, internationally bestselling author of The Island of Missing Trees and 10 Minutes 38 Seconds in This Strange World

This is the story of one lost poem, two great rivers, and three remarkable lives –
all connected by a single drop of water.

In the ruins of Nineveh, that ancient city of Mesopotamia, there lies hidden in the
sand fragments of a long-forgotten poem, the Epic of Gilgamesh.

In Victorian London, an extraordinary child is born at the edge of the dirt-black
Thames. Arthur’s only chance of escaping poverty is his brilliant memory. When
his gift earns him a spot as an apprentice at a printing press, Arthur’s world
opens up far beyond the slums, with one book soon sending him across the
seas: Nineveh and Its Remains.

In 2014 Turkey, Narin, a ten-year-old Yazidi girl, waits to be baptised in the
waters of the River Tigris. The ceremony is cruelly interrupted, and soon Narin
and her grandmother must journey across war-torn lands in the hope of finding
the sacred valley of their people.

In 2018 London, broken-hearted Zaleekhah, a hydrologist, moves to a houseboat
on the Thames to escape the wreckage of her marriage. Zaleekhah foresees a
life drained of all love and meaning – until an unexpected connection to her
homeland changes everything.

A dazzling feat of storytelling from one of the greatest writers of our time, Elif
Shafak’s There are Rivers in the Sky is a rich, sweeping novel that spans
centuries, continents and cultures, entwined by rivers, rains, and waterdrops:
