In the Country of Men by Hisham Matar, 2006.
--
"I am recalling now that last summer before I was sent away. It was 1979, and the sun was everywhere. Tripoli lay brilliant and still beneath it. Every person, animal and ant went in desperate search for shade, those occasional gray patches of mercy carved into the white of everything."

An extraordinary memoir, coming soon. The Return: Fathers, sons and the land in between #thereturn #hishammatar #memoir #penguin #june2016 #rcw @penguinukbooks

Me, looking heinously excited to be presenting my #NewcastleCityLibrary book club talk last night, on #HishamMatar's #IntheCountryofMen, particularly after finding out his editor and Arabic translator was in the audience. Excited did not cut it. I spilled water all over my bum in happiness, and am not coping particularly well today with having been CCed into an email from her to him. I am refreshing my phone every three seconds. IS THIS REAL LIFE

Binnenkort niemandsland van Hisham Matar lezen.

'My earliest memory of books is not of reading but of being read to.' Hisham Matar in @newyorkermag http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2016/06/06/hisham-matar-remembers-a-mysterious-book #hishammatar #thebook #newyorker

Hisham Matar's extraordinary memoir is published tomorrow in the UK. Here is the US edition, published on 5 July by @randomhouse. Michiko Kakutani in the @nytimes says '...he writes with a novelist's eye for physical and emotional detail, and a reporter's tactile sense of place and time...' #hishammatar #thereturn #viking #randomhouse #rcw @penguinukbooks

MOST RECENT

There has not been a day since his sudden and mysterious vanishing that I have not been searching for him, looking in the most unlikely places. Everything and everyone existence itself, has become an avocation, a possibility for resemblance perhaps this is what is meant by the brief and now almost archaic word: elegy.

Struggling to find the perfect midweek read? We suggest the critically acclaimed work of, Pulitzer Prize winning author, Hisham Matar. ‘The Return’ centers on Matar’s return to Libya, the country he was raised in, to search for the truth behind his father’s disappearance. Hisham’s memoir won the 2017 Pulitzer for Biography or Autobiography, the inaugural 2017 PEN/Jean Stein Book award and was the first nonfiction book to win the Folio Prize. 📚

I learned volumes from this great writer today - mostly about patience, though he never muttered the word. #HishamMatar #writers #nyswritersinstitute #memoirs #storypower #sharedstories #ualbany #memory #prose #pulitzer #legends #Libya

This Pulitzer Prize winning memoir works on so many levels. Hisham Matar was 19 or 20 when his father, a political dissident of Muamar Qaddafi's regime, was kidnapped in Egypt and imprisoned in Libya. Matar never finds out what happens to his father. This is a story of loss not just of a father but of a country. Matar had been living as a Libyan exile for 30 years when he finally returns. This book bears witness to his journeys--personal, political, psychological--and along the way I picked up on some history I hadn't known. Example: Italy under Mussolini had occupied Libya. #history #nonfiction #bookstagram #hishammatar #libya #middleeast #pulitzerprize

THE RETURN

Exquisite. Some books are treasures.

Hearing Hisham Matar speak at the Sydney Writers Festival earlier this year, I found myself captivated by an elegance and humility in his articulation. This memoir details his journey back to Libya in 2011 to discover the truth of what happened to his Father, who was in opposition to the rule of the Qaddafi dictatorship.

This book is well worth reading, and taking your time over, letting it sink in. Don't try to rush through it. It sets the pace. It breathes and you breathe. It will tell the story that it needs to tell, and we get to reflect upon it.

Book 28 of 2017

La copertina bellissima [Diana Matar, Evidence 4] di un libro bellissimo, appassionato, importante (anche per quello che sta accadendo oggi) #hishammatar #libia #memoria

Bonjour bookstagram. J'ai lu il y a quelques mois La terre qui les sépare d’Hisham Matar paru le 12/01/2017 @editions_gallimard 🔸Une histoire captivante sur la disparition d’un homme dont la famille est sans nouvelle. A travers le récit de l’histoire familiale, nous découvrons les différentes périodes politiques de la Libye, avant, pendant et après le Colonel Kadhafi. Un beau texte, touchant et triste qui nous amène à nous sentir concerné par cette disparition. A lire ! 🔸Quatrième de couverture :
En 1990, Hisham Matar a dix-neuf ans lorsque son père, Jaballa Matar, disparaît. Celui-ci, après avoir trouvé refuge en Égypte avec ses proches, est enlevé et emprisonné en Libye pour s’être opposé dès le début au régime de Kadhafi. La famille reçoit quelques lettres, envoyées secrètement, jusqu’à ce que toute correspondance cesse brusquement. Vingt et un ans plus tard, lors de la chute de Kadhafi, en 2011, le peuple prend les prisons d’assaut et libère les détenus. Mais Jaballa Matar est introuvable. A-t-il été exécuté lors du massacre d’Abou Salim qui a fait 1 270 victimes en 1996? La détention l’a-t-elle à ce point affaibli qu’il erre quelque part, libre mais privé de souvenirs et d’identité? Hisham Matar va mener l’enquête pendant des années, contactant des ONG et des ambassades, relatant l’histoire de cette disparition dans la presse internationale, se rendant à la Chambre des lords en Angleterre, son pays d’adoption, s’adressant aux personnalités les plus inattendues, de Mandela au fils de Kadhafi. À travers une méditation profonde et universelle sur la condition des fils qui attendent le retour de leurs pères partis au combat, Hisham Matar retrace aussi l’histoire poignante d’un retour au pays, après une absence de plus de trente ans. Il livre également un portrait subtil de la Libye prise dans la tourmente de la dictature et de la révolution, qui synthétise les espoirs déçus du Printemps arabe.

Look forward to reading this. #HishamMatar #Libya #Books #Love

This is a beautifully written biography, "The Return: Fathers, Sons and the Land in Between" by Hisham Matar. In this biography Hisham writes about the search for his father and all the feelings involved in it. He also writes about other relatives, the Arab revolution and the history of his homeland Libya. It's personal and political at the same time, and it shows how the individual get affected by, and also can affect, the major political issues. I really think this is both a beautiful and important biography.

Finito #ilritorno #thereturn di #hishammatar libro intenso sul dolore e sulla violenza che un figlio ha vissuto vedendosi portare via il proprio padre dal regime di Gheddafi. Scritto benissimo, un libro che ti lascia un senso di vuoto, di assenza/presenza per una vita vissuta alla ricerca di un padre scomparso nelle carceri libiche.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Este es el tercer libro que leí de Hisham Matar este año. Es su última novela, o su biografía, ganadora del premio Pulitzer, en el que habla de su país, de la ausencia de su padre, de la dictadura de Gadafi. Siempre me gusta poner una cita de un libro, pero en este caso tardaría todo el día transcribiendo oraciones, párrafos, páginas o hasta capítulos enteros.
Este fue un autor que me encontró en un estante, un autor que me habló justamente de esa ausencia del padre, de ese intento de encontrarlo con la literatura, de invocarlo a diario, y encontrarlo en el silencio, en la memoria, en la agonía, en la muerte misma.
Léanlo, por favor, pronto.
El regreso, Hisham Matar

Three months since I got this beauty and I'm still delighted. Being a practical and anxious person I was worried I'd regret it, but it feels just right and exactly as if it belongs on my skin.

An allegory to cure oneself of one's country. Cultivate a skill to learn to live away from people and places you love. A son's sentimental account how a country destroys itself by destroying families. Long never ending, keen to impress paragraphs communicate unique perspectives ranging from a grandfathers house in the Libyan desert to the inaccuracy in stating a particular calendar day, when a persons life ends. As you read through the pages you eagerly await to encounter the next masterful balanced articulation. The book enlivens and encourages you with language. Reread to replicate and deepen the pleasure. #goodbook #hishammatar

I am really looking forward to (eventually😂) reading this. It’s about Hisham returning to Libya to trace his father, over twenty years after he was kidnapped by Libyan security forces. It sounds like a difficult but interesting read - has anyone else read this? 😊 #costabiographyaward

Si legge d'un fiato. Fa capire molto della Libia, del regime di Gheddafi con cui abbiamo pensato di poter trattare, del nostro passato coloniale spesso dimenticato. #IlRitorno #HishamMatar #Pulitzer2017 #premioPulitzer #Pulitzer

Currently reading The Return by Hisham Matar so gripping and so so beautifully written 📚#biography #thereturn #hishammatar #libya #hotchocolate #bookworm #book #bookish #reading

Someone put 'The Return' by #hishammatar in the Business / Economics books section. 😆

'What was utmost in his mind was preservation. Part of what we fear in suffering, perhaps the part we fear most, is transformation'
Accidentally went to a SOAS talk a few months back which I thought would be about 'Libya and the Middle East post Arab-Spring' but was actually a stop on the promotional book tour for this Libyan author. #hishammatar #libya

June Book Club: "The Return" by Hisham Matar is about a young boy's search for answers, his relationship with his father, and coming to terms with his own identity. Enjoyed it while I was reading it, but remember very little about it now. I do remember thinking the writing was poetic.

I had a hard time getting into this, but there is no doubting the beauty of this memoir. But it was haunting as he described the fear his family felt and it was so sad. The desire and longing for his father was so strong and throughout I too, hoped that he was alive and it was a terrible mistake. #hishammatar #thereturn #excellentread #audible #book #bookstagram #books #bookshelf #read #reading #goodreads #bolesonbooks #readers #booklover #bookworm #bookish #bibliophile #booknerd #booknerds #shelfie #literature #literacy #bookworms #goodreading #shelfie #fiction #epicreads #bookworld #chiclit #bookaddict #amreading
