Qalam an-najjar : O Lapis do carpinteiro Paperback / softback


Text in Arabic. Set in the dark days of the Spanish Civil War, Qalam an-Najjar charts the linked destinies of Dr Daniel Da Barca, the Republican who cheats death in Francos prisons, and Herbal, the illiterate Falangist, and of the unnamed painter with the carpenters pencil, the man who unites them in life and death. All are bound together by the events of the Civil War -- the artists and the peasants alike -- and all haunted by the power of the carpenters pencil.
