The Wasted Vigil by Nadeem Aslam

The Wasted Vigil by Nadeem Aslam is as impressive as books like A Fine Balance and A Thousand Splendid Suns. It takes place in contemporary Afghanistan and links together the stories of five very different characters.  This is an intense and sad story of people being controlled by their circumstances.  It's one of the best that I've read.
