In the Sea there are Crocodiles

“One night before putting him to bed, Enaiatollah’s mother tells him three things: don’t use drugs, don’t use weapons, don’t steal. The next day he wakes up to find she isn’t there. They have fled their village in Ghazni to seek safety outside Afghanistan but his mother has decided to return home to her younger children. Ten-year-old Enaiatollah is left alone in Pakistan to fend for himself.”

Enaiatollah’s journey from Gahazni to the city of Turin in Italy is told by Fabio Geda, an Italian author. There are pieces of conversation between Fabio and Enaiatollah throughout the novel; it is funny and sad as you would expect from such a journey.
