Abstract:

A world away from Damascus, in the remote hills of Syria, lies Sarmada, a Druze village whose people and landscape are animated with a strange magic. In the rocky isolation of Sarmada, words take on new meanings and people take on new format, as fantasy, sex, transmigrating souls, potions and soothsayers all conspire. The country may struggle against the forces of the Ottoman Empire, the French, and then the Ba'ath, but in the village it is the forces of society, family, and passion that are all-important. Through the stories of three of Sarmada's women, this bold and dazzling novel portrays desire and destiny in a place beyond history. Fadi Azzam's Sarmada is a captivating, unforgettable debut.
