An extremely moving account of life in Yarmouk, Damascus, from a man determined to hold onto hope in the face of war. This tender and poetic account of Aeham’s experiences, from losing his city, friends and family to leaving his country and finding safety, will move readers with raw and candid emotion. His heart-wrenching story has been transcribed from Syrian into English and it is the understated use of the English language that gives a stark and poignant voice to Aeham’s traumatic experiences. This is a gripping portrait of a man’s search for solace, and of a country that has been fiercely torn apart.
