Lina : a portrait of a Damascene girl

A revealing study of a girl growing to maturity in middle-class Syria and of her family's struggle to survive in the tumultuous years of 1940-1961 in Damascus. Attar's work shows a keen eye for the daily scene, a keen ear for conversation, and a tragic sense of history.
