Libya, 1979 Nine year old Suleiman s days are circumscribed by the narrow rituals of childhood outings to the ruins surrounding Tripoli, games with friends played under the burning sun, exotic gifts from his father s constant business trips abroad But his nights have come to revolve around his mother s increasingly disturbing bedside stories full of old family bitternesLibya, 1979 Nine year old Suleiman s days are circumscribed by the narrow rituals of childhood outings to the ruins surrounding Tripoli, games with friends played under the burning sun, exotic gifts from his father s constant business trips abroad But his nights have come to revolve around his mother s increasingly disturbing bedside stories full of old family bitterness And then one day Suleiman sees his father across the square of a busy marketplace, his face wrapped in a pair of dark sunglasses Wasn t he supposed to be away on business yet again Why is he going into that strange building with the green shutters Why did he lie Suleiman is soon caught up in a world he cannot hope to understand where the sound of the telephone ringing becomes a portent of grave danger where his mother frantically burns his father s cherished books where a stranger full of sinister questions sits outside in a parked car all day where his best friend s father can disappear overnight, next to be seen publicly interrogated on state television.In the Country of Men is a stunning depiction of a child confronted with the private fallout of a public nightmare But above all, it is a debut of rare insight and literary grace.
