Structure

This book is primarily structured around three primary individuals, Akbar Gul, Heela, and Jan Muhammad Khan. Though these three lived in generally the same region of Afghanistan, their experiences are only indirectly linked and they never encounter each other in person. Gopal’s goal is to present the experiences of these individuals in connection to the war in Afghanistan, rather than a complete account of the war itself.
