Yes! This book is originally published in Arabic and this time I read the original copy and not the translated one as in a previous book I read: “The Man in the Sharkskin Suit.”
I might have enjoyed the method or the way the author chose to write-up his story, since it is an autobiographical novel.
His life seemed very interesting and so full of DRAMA. More than you would find in a drama movie.
I enjoyed reading it, even though some of the events and parts of the books I found to be daring to be written and acknowledged of it really occurring to a person who is supposed to be from an Arab background.
I am not sure if this book is included in the 1001 book list I have, I do not think it is, but here is a link for the English version for you to check it out: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2783611-an-iraqi-in-paris
And this is the Arabic one: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/6342365
This makes my number 3 book to be read.
Already finished reading 3 books this year, making it 3 out of 50.
I have to read 47 more books to accomplish my challenge: 2013 Reading Challenge on GoodReads
Yes! I know I am 3% behind, which corresponds to one book behind, but no worries, I am already reading two books, one 25% through with it and the other about 65%. 😀
So! No Worries!
