No Knives in the Kitchens of This City

by Khaled Khalifa, translated by Leri Price
£9.99   paperback  The American University in Cairo Press (2016)

No Knives in the Kitchens of This City by Khaled Khalifa, translated by Leri Price Winner of the Naguib Mahfouz Medal for Literature: an eloquent portrayal of life under dictatorship by an acclaimed Syrian writer.
 
In the once beautiful city of Aleppo, one Syrian family descends into tragedy and ruin. Irrepressible Sawsan flirts with militias, the ruling party, and finally religion, seeking but never finding salvation. She and her siblings and mother are slowly choked in violence and decay, as their lives are plundered by a brutal regime.
 
Set between the 1960s and 2000s, No Knives in the Kitchens of This City unravels the systems of fear and control under Assad. With eloquence and startling honesty, it speaks of the persecution of a whole society.
