Rightfully so, The Guardian calls it a timely novel. In The Runaways, the discourse on radicalization is fanned by the converging lives of three different young people as we, the readers, are flown from dusty, noise-filled, engine-breathing Karachi, gloomy Portsmouth, and rustic Varanasi to rubble-filled, war stricken Syria and Mosul. If one thinks the novel is hell-bent on presenting “Islamic” radicalisation as radicalisation has grown to be a word strongly connected to Islam, then that would be a misconception (Anita Rose’s story is a glaring example). In an interview with The Wire, she explains this with bold clarity and a robust tone, “I wouldn’t call it ‘Islamic’ radicalism at all. Look at the world today – radicalism isn’t the exclusive property of one people or one religion. Young people are vulnerable to anger and violence all over the world.” She says radicalisation is spurred more by nationalism than religion.
