The swallows of Kabul by Yasmina Khadra( Book )
120 editions published between 2001 and 2015 in 20 languages and held by 2,785 libraries worldwide
This novel is an astounding tale of love and sacrifice in the horrific and inhumane Taliban regime. How do you survive in a world where you can be beaten up for laughing with your husband? What kind of life can you live when everything has been taken away from you? Where the Taliban rule, love between a man and a woman, joy, music, freedom have been banned, replaced by violence and hatred, all in the name of God. Mosheen and Zunaira had everything going for them before. He was going to become a diplomat, she was a magistrate, they came from wealthy families and married young. They've lost everything: their parents are dead, their house destroyed, Zunaira is not allowed to work and has to wear the hated Burkha to go out. Atiq, a Russian war veteran, now works part-time as a prison jailer. His wife Musarrat is dying of an unknown illness. He is drained by his love and pain for her, her efforts to please him, her slow agony. All around them are men with certainties, ready to lapidate a woman or divorce a dying wife. This harsh world is driving the two couples mad. One day, Mosheen convinces Zunaira to go out with him. At first she resists him. Then she gives way. This outing and its disastrous consequences entwine the fates of the two couples. It is the affirmation of love and sacrifice against the prevailing inhumanity

Jaafari's disbelief that his secular, loving spouse committed the atrocity is overcome when he receives a letter from her posthumously. In an effort to make sense of her decision, Jaafari plunges into the Palestinian territories to discover the forces that recruited her

The third novel in Yasmina Khadra's bestselling trilogy about Islamic fundamentalism has the most compelling backdrop of any of his novels: Iraq in the wake of the American invasion. A young Iraqi student, unable to attend college because of the war, sees American soldiers leave a trail of humiliation and grief in his small village. Bent on revenge, he flees to the chaotic streets of Baghdad where insurgents soon realize they can make use of his anger. Eventually he is groomed for a secret terrorist mission meant to dwarf the attacks of September 11th, only to find himself struggling with moral qualms. The Sirens of Baghdad is a powerful look at the effects of violence on ordinary people, showing what can turn a decent human being into a weapon, and how the good in human nature can resist.

""Such was the battle that raged between Cousin K and me: good done badly; evil done well." So relates the unnamed narrator of Cousin K as he launches into the sad tale of his childhood. With his father brutally killed as a traitor during Algeria's war of independence and his older brother an army officer far away, the young boy lives reclusively with his mother, an unfeeling woman who ignores him entirely. At fourteen he directs his thirst for affection toward his nine-year-old cousin, K, who has come to stay with his family for the summer. But so far from reciprocating his passionate regard for her, the little girl steals the affections of his mother and mocks and humiliates him resulting in his love becoming hopelessly entangled with hatred. Now, fate places a young woman in the narrator's path when he rescues her after a violent attack. From her he once more begs for the love that his mother and K always refused him, and her rejection revives the same hatred and illuminates the permanent emotional scars left on him from a lifetime of emotional neglect and derision, resulting in dire consequences."--

"L'Olympe des Infortunes est un terrain vague coincé entre une décharge publique et la mer, où se décomposent au soleil des dieux déchus. Il y a Ach le Borgne, qui sait mieux que personne magnifier les clochards ; Junior le Simplet ; Mania la Fantomatique ; le Pacha et sa cour de soûlards, et bien d'autres personnages encore, aussi obscurs qu'attachants. C'est un pays de mirages et de grande solitude où toutes les hontes sont bues comme sont tus les plus terribles secrets. À travers ce voyage philosophique, Yasmina Khadra nous propose une escale dans l'univers des paumés ; un univers fait de tendresse et de cocasseries, de rêves invraisemblables et de possessions abusives où surgissent, parfois, de cuisantes questions sur te Mensonge et la Culpabilité."--Page 4 of cover
