9780099442127: Earth And Ashes

Earth and Ashes is a story of such spareness and power it leaves the reader reeling. Set during the Russian occupation of Afghanistan, it is a fable about war, family, home and tradition. An old man and his grandson sit in a deserted landscape of dusty roads and looming mountains. What are they waiting for? As we watch them we learn their story...

Atiq Rahimi has managed to condense centuries of Afghan history into his short tale of three very different generations. At the same time, he has created a story that is universal in its power.

Review:

"Terribly poignant" ( Times Literary Supplement)

"Novel, short story, fable? - it doesn't matter. This short book has a sadness that breaks your heart and a visual beauty shot through with the horror of war. Every word, every tear, every gesture is significant" ( Nouvel Observateur)

"Dense, provocative and, most of all revelatory" (Claire Allfree Metro)

"A hallucinatory, tragic cry of despair" ( Le Monde)

"With this novel Rahimi picks up a shard of broken glass and sees the whole truth of his devastated country" ( Der Spiegel)

From the Publisher:

'It has the feel of a book of great antiquity and authority; you could more readily level the Afghan mountains than damage the dreaming culture that Earth and Ashes both embodies and silently trusts' Times
