Libya, 1979. Nine-year-old Suleiman's days are circumscribed by the narrow rituals of childhood: outings to the ruins surrounding Tripoli, games with friends played under the burning sun, exotic gifts from his father's constant business trips abroad. But his nights have come to revolve around his mother's increasingly disturbing bedside stories full of old family bitterness. And then one day Suleiman sees his father across the square of a busy marketplace, his face wrapped in a pair of dark sunglasses. Wasn't he supposed to be away on business yet again? Why is he going into that strange building with the green shutters? Why did he lie? Suleiman is soon caught up in a world he cannot hope to understand-where the sound of the telephone ringing becomes a portent of grave danger; where his mother frantically burns his father's cherished books; where a stranger full of sinister questions sits outside in a parked car all day; where his best friend's father can disappear overnight, next to be seen publicly interrogated on state television.In the Country of Men is a stunning depiction of a child confronted with the private fallout of a public nightmare. But above all, it is a debut of rare insight and literary grace.… (mere)

"the Libyan Kite Runner"
  bhowell | Dec 12, 2020 |
Hisham Matar beschreibt in seinem Roman das Leben in Libyen zur Zeit Gaddafis. Die Geschehnisse um zwei Familien, deren Väter sich für die Demokratie einsetzen, wird aus der Sicht eines 9jährigen erzählt, Suleiman, eher ungewöhnlich: ein Einzelkind. Die Geschichte spielt 1979, also 10 Jahre nach dem Militärputsch und 2 Jahre nach der Ausrufung der sozialistischen Volksrepublik.

Aus der Sicht des Neunjährigen steht die große Politik nicht im Zentrum, aber es wird eindrücklich beschrieben, welche Ängste die notwendige Heimlichtuerei der Eltern auslösen. Eindrücklich auch die Szenen, in denen die "Krankheit" der Mutter beschrieben wird, wenn der Vater mal wieder längere Zeit nicht zu Hause ist.

Da Suleiman nicht versteht (nicht verstehen kann), was um ihn herum passiert, verhält er sich aus einem Bedürfnis der Zugehörigkeit heraus nicht immer so, wie man das von einem "strahlenden Helden" erwarten würde, was dem Roman aber auch eine eindrückliche Authentizität verleiht.

Von mir eine klare Leseempfehlung, mit der Option, die Geschichte Libyens in weiteren Bänden weiter zu verfolgen. ( )

Suleiman, a nine-year-old boy in Libya is ignorant of the threat brought about by the new regime of Muammar Gaddafi. He unwittingly supplies information to the secret police who are watching his home for the father they suspect of being a subversive. Matar has created an outstanding story from a difficult, brutal era in Libya, an era to which he was personally exposed. His writing is beautiful, as is apparent in the scene where the boy is feasting on mulberries, as well as the execution scene that is televised and with every minute detail noticed by the audience. This is a profound story that the reader will remember long after closing the book. ( )
