9780007221943: Somewhere Home

This remarkable novel, winner of the Commonwealth Writers' Prize, tells the story of three women, each of them far from where they came, all of whom are still searching for somewhere that can be called home.Maysa returns to the house that was her grandparents' when she was a child, in a village high on the slopes of Mount Lebanon. Aida, who has long since left the country of her birth, returns in search of the Palestinian refugee who was a second father to her when she was a child. And Salwa, now an old woman, recalls her life from her hospital bed, surrounded by her family but still, in some sense, far from home.

About the Author:

Nada Awar Jarrar was born in Lebanon to an Australian mother and Lebanese father. She now lives in Beirut with her husband and daughter.

Review:

' A picture of lyrical simplicity ... her style is subtle and leaves the reader with an urge to find out more about the places and people she has created' Observer`There is gentle humour to be found in its characterisation; you will feel that Jarrar knows these people well' Daily Telegraph`In an age of dislocation Somewhere, Home lights up the lost road to ourselves and the home place of the heart' Brian Keenan`A novel of sensations. The evocative prose captures the heady tastes, swirling sounds and smells of Beirut and Mount Lebanon' Big Issue
