A Sky So Close
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungEvocative and exquisite, A Sky So Close was first published to controversy in the Middle East. Now in English, it has received wide acclaim as a haunting coming-of-age tale that plunges into the heart of the cultural clash between East and West. It is a story narrated by an unnamed girl born of an Iraqi father and an English mother. Raised in the very traditional Iraqi countryside, she is compelled to attend a Western school for music and ballet -- and she aches for a sense of belonging. Her struggles and isolation only increase when her family moves first to Baghdad and then, at the outbreak of war, to England, where her most arduous personal trials await. In crystalline, poetic prose, Betool Khedairi presents a daringly fresh look into the soul of a woman formed by two worlds, yet fully accepted by neither.
