She too would begin to revisit the past once it had grown a little and she would dwell on it for hours—even were it to consist of nothing but misery Her wounds would heal and she would retain only what was best In any case for me to stop living in the past it would have to be dead And it clearly wasn’t—the past was alive and well in one form or another and it not only coexisted with the present but continued to wrangle with it Was I really escaping the present and seeking refuge in the past as she alleged Even if it were true was there shame in it when the present was no than a booby trapped snare full of car bombs brutality and horror Perhaps the past was like the garden which I so loved and which I tended as if it were my own daughter just in order to escape the noise and ugliness of the world My own paradise in the heart of hell my own ‘autonomous region’ as I sometimes liked to call it I would do anything to de fend that garden and the house because they were all I had leftMy youth was not her youth her time and my time were worlds apart Her green eyes fluttered open to the ravages of war and sanctions; deprivation violence and displacement were the first things she tasted in life I on the other hand had lived in prosperous times which I still remembered and continued to believe were realWe repeated and clung to those words like an invocation but our faith in them was uite differentI'm trying to remember a time when I haven't felt alienated smothered or as now destitute To me our exodus from the house of al Dawra didn't take place all at once in the summer of 2007 Rather it was one of an unbroken seuence of events that spannned many years It's as if chunks of me were lopped off or stolen by bit until nothing was left I felt that I had no happy time to look back on

Exaltación pero no solo La capital de Irak también ha sabido brillar Por su parte Maha al escuchar a su tío solo puede reprocharle su ceguera ¿hay alguien capaz de tener esperanzas en un lugar como este ¿cómo hacerlo en un país empeñado en acabar consigo mismo ¿cómo en esta ciudad donde la pantalla del televisor nos anuncia los muertos del día y la del ordenador nos muestra la prosp. This is a beautifully written novel showing the beauty of Baghdad society in 60s and 70s and then it also shows the collapse of the society during the time of Saddam Hussein and following his falling The book portrait the lives of Christians in particular in the periods mentioned above but and how they interacted with Muslims I enjoyed the book very much and anyone who would like knowing about life in the last 50 years in Baghdad will really enjoy it The characters very well portrayed and the author has a great talent I was than impressed and very proud to see an Irai author nominated for the Booker prise
