The Invisible Ones

by Karel van Loon
£8.99   paperback  Maia Press Ltd (2006)

The Invisible Ones by Karel van Loon Min Thein, a lawyer in a sleepy provincial town in Burma, has struggled to avoid confrontation with his country's military regime, despite defending its victims. But when he incurs the wrath of the district commander, he is shadowed, intimidated and thwarted - he loses his country, his wife and his sight.
In this gripping novel about the life of a refugee, harrowing descriptions of the fate of Burma's political prisoners blend with Buddhist myth, lyrical descriptions of the land and memories of a carefree childhood.
Translated from Dutch by David Colmer.

"This remarkable Dutch novelist is not just one to watch - he is one to live by."
(The Times)
