Elias Khoury ã 4 characters Al wudjuh al bayda Read & Download é 104 “Khoury is the sort of novelist whose name is inseparable from a city Los Angeles has Joan Didion and Raymond Chandler and Istanbul Orhan Pamuk The beautiful resilient city of Beirut belongs to Khoury” Laila Lalami Los Angeles Times“Because the world is the way it is because whole groups of people can be maligned neglected ignored for too many years we need the voice of Elias Khoury detailed exuisite humane than ever Read him Without fail read him” Naomi Shihab NyeWhy was the corpse of Khalil Ahmed Jâber found in the municipal garbage dump Why had this civil servant disappeared wee. A touching tale that reminded me of Ismail Kadare s Chronicle in Stone but in tones harsher and bleak The story can be summed up like this A regular middle class man loses his sanity after the death of his son involved in the never ending fighting that plagues Beirut in the 80s The man begins to wipe out all traces of his son s existence and then moves on to erasing the marks of other martyrs as his son was declared as well He does this by painting the faces on the posters in white going through the town in search of posters on the wall and living the life of a homeless but harmless lunatic The name of the novel comes from his incoherent theory that he is giving them white masks by painting them over We find out from the first page that the man is brutally tortured and murdered and that the novel is an attempt to retrace his steps to find out why he was killed and by whom almost like in a classic whodunnit page turnerOf course the entire mystery is only a pretext for the real story about the horrors of war in Beirut and how it tears everything apart for everyone The story takes us from person to person in an attempt to trace the man s steps and we find out about the circumstances of very varied people from all social classes either fighters or civilians etc The picture painted is incredibly sad and destabilizing I think this feeling of destabilization of being on the lookout constantly as if you know everything might change overnight as a huge existential stressor is what Elias Khoury manages to imprint best An interesting glimpse into Lebanese society and culture also gets painted throughout the pages in its permanent state regardless of the war described Customs servant master relationships the casual mistreatment of women the fervor of young intellectuals who are always looking for the next thing to revolutionize I think these are all a bit glimpsed throughout the lines I loved it and I look forward to read from the author
