The Silence of My Father, Paperback / softback Book

The Silence of My Father Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Alexandre Najjar's father is celebrated in his legal profession for his rare eloquence.

In the courtroom the word is everything, and his work is his life.

He is also the father of six children, in whom he instils great fear, imposing military discipline, punishing them severely when they break the rules.

Behind this discipline, however, lies an affectionate man, brimming with humour and curiosity, and contagiously optimistic.

A sudden heart attack leaves him wheelchair-bound and painfully deprived of the eloquence for which he was so well respected.

But the love of his family and his unfading hope will help him overcome this trying time.

A son's frank and moving homage to his father.
