Bridging Cultures Book Discussion: In the Country of Men
Don’t miss this exciting book discussion, led by Virginia Tech Professor Steven Salaita, author of six books and numerous articles. 10/14, 6:30pm, Natural Science Center. Open to the public; refreshments provided.
The truth couldn’t be kept away, it was cunning, sly-natured, seeping through at its own indifferent pace.
In Hisham Matar’s debut novel, a Libyan boy must come to terms with difficult truths about Libya, loyalty, and truth when his father disappears. On the surface a story of the violence and absurdity of life during the rule of Muammar al-Qaddafi, In the Country of Men describes the politics of childhood more than the politics of nations. Just as the plot brilliantly unfolds in unpredictable ways, we are catapulted forward to the next decade. We are left to reflect on the ties that bind us all—the universal embarrassments and frustrations of childhood, the challenge of constructing meaning from memory, and the presence of unavoidable truths.
