Praise for 
Night of Power:

“Achingly relatable . . . [
Night of Power] handily powers through contemporary Ugandan history, scales the Ismaili Muslim community’s place in it, and delivers both into the setting of 1970’s multicultural-policy-era Canada, a version of the country with, for better and worse, a lasting mythology . . . An original trauma story.”  


The Globe and Mail


"An especially important and accomplished story...elegant, complex, but propulsive and strongly cinematic."


David Chariandy, author of Brother

“Anar Ali’s
Night of Power is a searing and beautiful novel. With perfect pitch, the story glides between the perspectives of father, mother, and son. It is an honest and utterly engaging meditation about love and loss, tenderness and violence, adaptability and delusion, dislocation and rebirth.”


Lawrence Hill, author of The Book of Negroes and The Illegal


Night of Power is a deeply moving story of the complications of love, loss, obligation, and inheritance that can both bind a family and tear it apart. Written with great compassion for all of its characters, Anar Ali offers us a book that is tender and wise.”


Camilla Gibb, author of several novels, including Sweetness in the Belly

 

"With
Night of Power, Anar Ali tells a truly Canadian story. A story of dreams fulfilled and broken, of expectations set and dashed, and ultimately of understanding what really matters. With her signature style, she paints a deep portrait of complex, unforgettable characters."


Naheed Nenshi, Mayor of Calgary

“I was profoundly moved by
Night of Power. Her characters have lingered in my mind long after the last page. Anar Ali is a tremendously gifted storyteller.”


Donna Morrissey, author of The Fortunate Brother

"Ali’s story of an Ugandan family fleeing Idi Amin’s regime and resettling in Calgary maintains real urgency . . . Family tensions, culture shock and racism collide in this taut tale."


NOW Magazine, The 14 best books to read in summer 2019
