    Yusuf duce o viata linistita cu familia sa într-un orasel din Africa de Est, iar când e înstiintat ca urmeaza sa plece departe de casa primeste vestea senin. Nu-i trece prin minte sa întrebe de ce trebuie sa-l însoteasca pe unchiul Aziz si de ce a fost organizata atât de rapid expeditia; nu întreaba nici macar când se va întoarce. Adevarul este ca „unchiul“ e un negustor bogat si puternic, iar Yusuf i-a fost încredintat drept zalog pentru datoriile tatalui sau.Paradis este o tapiserie complexA în care se întreE es mituri, vise E i tradiE iile biblicA E i coranicA , povestea maturizA rii unui bA iat într-o AfricA mA cinatA de colonialism E i violenE A .„O carte poeticA , vA dind o forE A evocatoare impresionantA , despre Africa E i puterea sumbrA a necunoscutului.“ Independent on Sunday„Gurnah îE i descrie lumea într-o prozA poeticA deopotrivA purA E i lucidA – un mic paradis în sine...
