This book is one of the powerful, poignant books I have ever read about wars (and I've read a great deal). It tackles the deeper issues of violence -- how does the soul feel when confronted with violence, mindless violence, on a daily basis? how do people react? what happens to one's sensitivity? one's ability for honest laughter? one's interactions with others?
Hoda Barakat delves into those issues - and does so courageously and poetically. She also presents them through the eyes of a homosexual man. Quite powerful!.
Highly recommended - to Lebanese, to Arabs, and to all people interested in examining the effects of war and violence on every-day people.
- Rania (a Lebanese-American)
Great fun to read in the sun.
