by Shenaz Patel
Translated from the French by Jeffrey Zuckerman
Based on a true, still-unfolding story, Silence of the Chagos is a powerful exploration of cultural identity, the concept of home, and above all the neverending desire for justice. Shenaz Patel draws on the lives of uprooted Chagossian activists in this tragic example of 20th century political oppression.
