À propos
Set in Libya during the late 1970s Qaddafi regime, In the Country of Men takes you into a world that is rarely seen in fiction and brings it brilliantly and vividly to life. 'The most highly prized literary début of the autumn' Bookseller This first novel sold in heated auctions across Europe and in the US within a week of being submitted, and will be published in 13 languages. Massive publicity campaign to include author tour, and features and interviews across the press and broadcast media. On a white-hot day in Tripoli, Libya, in the summer of 1979, nine-year-old Suleiman is shopping in the market square with his mother. His father is away on business - except that he is sure he has just seen him, standing across the street in a pair of dark glasses. But why isn't he waving ? And why doesn't he come home when he knows Suleiman's mother is falling apart ? In the Country of Men is told from the point of view of a young boy growing up in a terrifying and bewildering world where his best friend's father disappears and is next seen on state television at a public execution ; where a mysterious man sits outside the house ail day and asks strange questions ; where his mother burns all their books when it seems that his father has finally disappeared for good. Soon the whispers and fears, secrets and lies will become so intense that Suleiman can bear them no longer and, in his terrified effort to save his family, he may end up betraying his friends, his parents and ultimately himself.
