Three short novels including Prix Goncourt–winning The Patience Stone that convey years of Afghan history heartache and hope Never before in paperback   Ati Rahimi’s reputation for writing war stories of immense drama and intimacy began with his first novel Earth and Ashes about fathers and sons and the terrible strain inflicted on families when an Afghan village is destroyed by the Russian army    . These were difficult stories to process In Earth and Ashes a grandfather struggles with the decision to tell his son about the slaughter of their family members In A Thousand Rooms of Dream and Fear a man whose targeting by the Communist government seems to be disproportional to his crime of being out after curfew has others try to save him while he remains confused about his choices And in The Patience Stone a woman tells her secrets to a seemingly comatose husband revealing the ways she's failed to be the invisible and submissive wife I thought that A Thousand Rooms of Dream and Fear was the strongest story but also the most difficult in form The description of the stories both what I've just given and the summaries I read beforehand didn't prepare me for the formlessness of the story I was expecting a linear objectively descriptive narrative but the story remains close within the head of the narrator protagonist After being nearly beaten to death he's confused and indecisive and his dreams day dreams and memories are treated with the same weight as actual events that are happening around him The switching from dreams to waking also occurs in Earth and Ashes It can be hard to keep track of when he's flowed into a dream The prose is very focused around what a person might feel at the given moment rather than attempting to give lengthy explanations or descriptions or analysis It's worth examining what cultural references we take for granted Rahimi mentions The Book of Kings Haft Paikar Book of the Dead with the casualness that an American writer might reference Huck Finn or Leaves of Grass assuming that the reader will understand the significance although the prefaces and appendices do describe the works in brief It's easy to forget all the things you're missing although it's wonderfully true that written works can transcend time and culture and translation to transmit something to the reader Return to Dawn short The Slithering Corpse & Other Sinister Stories novels Wholehearted Teaching of Gifted Young Women including Haunted Atlanta and Beyond Prix Censored on Final Approach Goncourt–winning Finishing Becca The Mile High Mile Deep Patience Safari Jema Stone Scratchings of a Madwoman that HOA Warrior convey Adolescence years Persecution & Toleration of Can I Tell You About Being a Young Carer?

    Earth and AshesHonestly I was halfway through this story before I realized what was going on I think most of that was because of my unfamiliarity with the style I was also thrown by the way people used brother and father to refer to each other However I felt like the set up for the conflict was way later than it should have been I had little ties to the main character until ¾ of the way through when you learn about what happened to his village and why the trip to see his son was so important This confusion made it really hard for me to connect with the main character Then once I had finally felt like I understood this man he just leaves his grandson in the care of a stranger He does this then he heads off to the mine to tell his son what has happened Only he doesn’t even speak with his son He jumps to these ridiculous conclusions about his son and just decides to waste all the time effort and strain that it took him to get there It’s not that it makes the story unresolved it doesn’t It’s just the disregard of his son that frustrates me A Thousand Rooms of Dream and FearOne of my favorite lines was You should beware of two things about a woman her hair and her tears” It’s amazing because the whole time Farhad is focused on Mahnaz hair and when she pulls it out of her face I love that he uses her hair as way to project his own emotions onto her It is kind of the opposite of the uote above When Farhad see Mahnaz with her hair covering her face he can’t see her at all He only sees his own fear and hopes reflected back at him It’s like the things you should really be wary of about a women are the projections you the man put on herStill Mahnaz really lets her guard down around Farhad She brings him into her life briefly but completely She cooks for him she is naked around him Farhad has only seen his sister and his mother in this level of intimacy She’s brought this man into her house where it could ruin her life Yet she does it bravely Not because she loves Farhad but because he’s someone who needed her help It’s not a surprise that he thinks he’s fallen in loveThe Patience StoneThere are two wars going on in this story The actual war happening outside the room and the war inside the wife She is constantly fighting between what she wants to do and what she should do You see it as she constantly flips between different methods of care for her husband The perfect wife who says the names of Allah and does nothing but care for her paralyzed husband The woman so desperate for escape she plans to leave him there to starve The woman who is driven mad by the solitude who speaks as if her husband were responding The woman so weighed down by the carrying the regrets and secrets of a lifetime who just wants someone to listen to herAs she reveals herself to her husband she gets closer and closer to freedom Freedom from herself and her regrets freedom from her obligation to care for her dying husband freedom even from the restraints society places upon her All of this builds and escalates until she finally gets the freedom she begged for

    The violence of war is ever present but the violence against women physically culturally and psychologically makes for a distressing read leaving little hope for change in Afghanistan
