The Lightless Sky: An Afghan Refugee Boy's Journey

The Lightless Sky: An Afghan Refugee Boy's Journey

'To risk my life had to mean something. Otherwise what was it all for?' Gulwali Passarlay was sent away from Afghanistan at the age of twelve. Gulwali began a twelve month odyssey across Europe, spending time in prisons and nearly drowning in a boat on the Mediterranean.

Somehow he made it to Britain. He was fostered, sent to a good school, won a place at a top university, and was chosen to carry the Olympic torch in 2012.

His story is the central story of our times, and this memoir celebrates the triumph of courage and determination over adversity.
