International bestseller

An epic and heartbreaking story of two best friends whose families are divided by the conflicting loyalties of terrorism.

Miren and Bittori have been best friends all their lives, growing up in the same small town in the north of Spain. With limited interest in politics, the terrorist threat posed by ETA seems to affect them little. When Bittori’s husband starts receiving threatening letters from the violent group, however – demanding money, accusing him of being a police informant – she turns to her friend for help. But Miren’s loyalties are torn: her son Joxe Mari has just been recruited to the group as a terrorist and to denounce them as evil would be to condemn her own flesh and blood. Tensions rise, relationships fracture and events race towards a violent, tragic conclusion ... Fernando Aramburu’s Homeland is a gripping story and devastating exploration of the meaning of family, friendship, what it’s like to live in the shadow of terrorism and how countries and their people can possibly come to terms with their violent pasts.

'Aramburu recounts the lives of ordinary people shattered by events that are ongoing in Spain today even years after ETA has suspended its armed campaign; the [listener] needs no background in that tangled history to understand that basic, terrible truth. A humane, memorable work of literature.'
Kirkus Reviews, starred

'Shedding the occasional tear doesn’t matter. It is in any case difficult to read Homeland and remain dry-eyed.'
Corriere della Sera

'A magnificent novel which is becoming a publishing, political and literary phenomenon. A story imbued with a spine-tingling sense of realism.'
La Vanguardia
