The youth of God is a novel about migration and its bittersweet afterlives.  Somali-Canadian teenager Nuur is caught between racist bullying at school, a tense home life and toxic brainwashing at his mosque.  Santur sketches an intimate portrait of the vulnerability and of today's isolated inner city youth.  This is a haunting story filled with characters you will grow to love.  Santur delivers a complex and heartbreaking masterpiece, fearless in its desire to put religion, nation and our society on trial.
