2008) A novel by Nada Awar Jarrar

2008) A novel by Nada Awar Jarrar. The highly anticipated novel from the author of 'Dreams of Water' and 'Somewhere, Home'. Margo has lived in the old apartment block in Beirut for as long as her neighbour can remember. Married to a pilot who would be killed whilst flying over Germany, Margo played her own part in the war, first as a resistance fighter in occupied France and then as a translator after the liberation of the concentration camps in Poland and Germany. She had seen horror in her life. Layla lives next door to Margo and is in awe of her courage.

Set during the 1980s civil war in Lebanon, 'Dreams of Water' is complusively readable, deceptively simple and overwhelmingly moving. If you could tell me just one thing about yourself, what would it be?' She begins, 'I would say that I once lost a brother. As a young man disappears, his family is left wondering, hoping, fearing for what may have become of him. It is only through his loss that they begin to truly understand the deep bond of love that ties their family together

Book by Awar Jarrar, Nada
  • A beautifully written emotionally evocative book. Haunting.

  • Lebanon is a character in this book; its history and politics drive the action and cause the reader to understand the ambiguous feelings of the other characters towards their homeland (or the land of their exile.) This is also a story of longing to connect while learning to be alone. For readers who want both to understand and to feel what life is like in a part of the world we often read about in the news. Highly recommended.
