I, The Divine Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

'In this delightful novel, Alameddine takes his greatest risks yet, and succeeds brilliantly, in a work that while marked by radical formal innovation, manages to be warm, sad, funny and moving' Michael ChabonNamed by her grandfather after 'the Divine' Sarah Bernhardt, Sarah Nour El-Din grows up in Beirut against the tense background of civil war.

But the young Sarah finds pleasure in the everyday - her first cigarette, first kiss, seeking revenge on her tight-lipped stepmother.

Then, with adulthood, comes an awareness of the fragility of life.

After two failed marriages, the loss of her son, the death of one sister and the imprisonment of another, Sarah begins to tell her story.

But this story is not so easy to tell. A novel written entirely in first chapters, I, THE DIVINE is an honest and touching story of one woman's struggle to come to terms with her past.
