Where do I Belong? From Kabul to London – A Refugee’s Life by Shabibi Shah
Shabibi Shah left Afghanistan almost exactly thirty years ago – in March 1983.
The slim book, Where do I Belong?, is about Shabibi Shah’s life in Afghanistan and then as a refugee.
The tale is written with precision and in English, a language Shabibi mastered in her late forties. She is a published poet in her own language of Dari, and is careful with words.
