Saba arrives in an East African refugee camp as a young girl. In this
crowded and often hostile place, she has to carve out her new existence. As
she struggles to maintain her sense of self, Saba remains fiercely
protective of her mute brother Hagos – each sibling resisting the role
gender and society assigns.

'Silence is My Mother Tongue' is an extraordinary portrait of a woman of
courage and intelligence and a compelling story of exile, survival, and
love. Sulaiman Addonia questions what it means to be a man, to be a woman,
to be an individual when circumstance has forced the loss of all that makes
a home and the possibility of a future. A searing novel of love, judgement
and sacrifice and the powerful bonds forged in the crucible of refugee
camp.
