Breaking knees : modern Arabic short stories from Syria by Zakarīyā Tāmir( )

12 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in Arabic and English and held by 953 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The first of Zakaria Tamer's collections of stories to be published in English as one volume, Breaking Knees is a daring work of art that deals with taboo subjects like religion and sexuality in a direct manner and expresses an urgently felt need for change." "The general theme of Breaking Knees is repression: of the individual by the institutions of state and religion and of individuals by each other, particularly women by men. Thus the question of authority - political, social, sexual and religious - forms the thematic core of the book, with (female) sexuality receiving the lion's share of concern." "Political authority is manifest in the emphasis in many stories on the machinations of the police state - arbitrary arrest and detention, interrogations, corruption. Social authority expresses itself in the patriarchal cultural order and dominance of religious and cultural institutions and conventions that constrain individual freedom. Many stories stress religious hypocrisy and the unfilled sexual expectations of women. In bringing together religion, politics and sexuality (sometimes all three in the same story), the author is telling us indirectly that these forms of oppression are all connected."--Jacket

1 edition published in 1994 in Arabic and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The short, tightly told title story of this collection, Tigers on the Tenth Day, is an allegory that recounts with control how even the strongest of us can be gradually broken and tamed by those who wield the whip of power. Most of Zakaria Tamer's stories deal with man's inhumanity to man -- likewise to woman -- the oppression of the poor by the rich and of the weak by the strong. The political and social problems of his own country, Syria, and of the contemporary Arab world, are reflected in the stories and sketches in the sharply satirical style typical of his writing. -- From http://www.interlinkbooks.com (Oct. 24, 2012)
