Alright that was pretty uncomfortable. (See my previous post, not the one with the Wizard of Oz or that inspiring line from GRR Martin, btw). Now, let's hope this one fixes the bad aftertaste. Very promising. It's been sitting on my 'to read' pile for a couple of months. Now it's time! And officially another NYT top 10 books of the year. #hishamMatar @randomhouse thank you @mcnallyjackson for the autographed copy, yay.

Mesterlig memoir, skrev #sundaytimes om denne sag. Læs dig ind på forfatteren her 🤜🏼 #hishammatar 🤛🏼 og glæd dig til 20. januar, hvor vi udgiver bogen om en families splittelse på dansk under navnet HJEMKOMSTEN.

"Si ha bisogno di un padre a cui ribellarsi. Quando un padre non è né morto né vivo, quando è un fantasma, la volontà è impotente. Sono figlio di non uomo fuori dal comune, forse perfino un grand'uomo. E quando, come la maggior parte dei bambini, mi ribellavo alle prime percezioni che avevo di lui, lo facevo perché temevo le conseguenze delle sue convinzioni; avevo un disperato desiderio di fargli cambiare strada. [...] Le mie aspettative, riguardo a mio padre, erano molto normali. Come quel famoso figlio nell'Odissea - come la maggior parte dei figli, credo - desiderava essere 'figlio di un uomo felice, che arrivi alla sua vecchiaia con tutti i suoi beni'. Invece, a differenza di Telemaco, io continuo, dopo 25 anni, a sopportare che mio padre sia 'scomparso nel nulla, ignoto'. Invidio l'irrevocabilità dei funerali. Bramo la certezza" / Si chiama "Il ritorno" il libro di #HishamMatar , come quello di Ulisse, durato dieci anni, e come quello di noi, edipi senza regno, per i quali il viaggio su questa Terra non è che un eterno andare all'indietro, le radici e i semi. Che lettura. Buon rientro #Pulitzer @puntoeinaudimilano #einaudi #books #bookstagram

Paul's Book Trail 2017 No. 36
The Return is a great albeit agonising memoir of political exile and distant yearning.
Best First Biography prize-winner The Return: Fathers, Sons and the Land in Between by Hisham Matar recently took the Pulitzer Prize for biography. The Prize said: “For a first-person elegy for home and father that examines with controlled emotion the past and present of an embattled region.” The book chronicles the author's journey home two decades after his father's imprisonment in Gaddafi's Libya. #paulsbooktrail2017 #booklovers #bookstagram #hishammatar

Week 19: The Return: Fathers, Sons and the Land in Between by Hisham Matar. A memoir, reflection on exile and the consolations of art, an analysis of authoritarianism, a family history, a portrait of a country in the throes of a revolution, and an impassioned work of mourning. The Return tells a common story, the story of sons everywhere who have lost their fathers, as all sons eventually must.

"Let us dance and let us read. These two amusements will never harm the world"
Had to put these pics together - the journeys and truths these writers have shown me lie deep within my soul. That is the beauty of books for me - they reveal as they challenge, inspire and teach. The characters I meet along the way force me to be the best version of me.

From Libya to Hillbilly country on my lunch break ✈️ #HishamMatar #TheReturn #HillbillyElegy #JDVance #books #currentlyreading #bookstagram

Went to my favorite coffee shop, forgot my book. 🤦🏽‍♀️

I'm currently about half way through The Return and it's not at all what I expected- and that's ok.

It's quiet and calm and thoughtful. ☺️So while I'm learning so much about another part of the world, it's also teaching me to SLOW DOWN and smell the roses 🌹 #thereturn #fridayfeels

Just finished this fantastic book, it's devastating & heartbreakingly poetic. An insightful story of loss beautifully told, I loved it #greatread #hishammatar

A good refuge | "Il ritorno" -#HishamMatar

I'm going on holiday for my birthday in September, and my favourite game to play right now is "Picking Holiday Reads" 📚 Because I like to be this-level organised & to daydream about getting the time to #read these one right after the other 🤤 I quite like the idea of taking a break from YA & Romance on my holidays too, because that's my day-job and I've always tended towards epic saga reads & serials when in sunny places (I read all of Karin Slaughter on one holiday years ago) ... also, yes - flesh & blood #books when by the beach 🙌 #TheDry by #JaneHarper, #TheReturn by #HishamMatar, #SevenStonesToStandOrFall by #DianaGabaldon, #CinnamonAndGunpowder by #EliBrown, #StrangeTheDreamer by #LainiTaylor, #CrazyRichAsians by #KevinKwan 📚❤️ #book #instabooks #instabook #reading #totalbooknerd #becauseofreading #bookworm #bibliophile #bookworm #bookstagram #booknerdigans #instalove #bookstore #bookshelves #book #bookblogger #bookish #HolidayReads

Nothing like starting a new 📚adventure before work. Been looking forward to this one for a long time! Cue ALL the feels 🤗
