Set in a nameless British town that its Pakistani-born immigrants have renamed Dasht-e-Tanhaii, the Desert of Solitude, Maps for Lost Lovers is an exploration of cultural tension and religious bigotry played out in the personal breakdown of a single family. As the book begins, Jugnu and Chanda, whose love is both passionate and illicit, have disappeared from their home. Rumours about their disappearance abound, but five months pass before anything certain is known. Finally, on a snow-covered January morning, Chanda’s brothers are arrested for the murder of their sister and Jugnu. Maps for Lost Lovers traces the year following Jugnu and Chanda’s disappearance. Seen principally through the eyes of Jugnu’s brother Shamas, the cultured, poetic director of the local Community Relations Council and Commission for Racial Equality, and his wife Kaukab, mother of three increasingly estranged children and devout daughter of a Muslim cleric, the event marks the beginning of the unravelling of all that is sacred to them. It fills Shamas’s own house and life with grief and, in exploring the lovers’ disappearance and its aftermath, Nadeem Aslam discloses a legacy of miscomprehension and regret not only for Shamas and Kaukab but for their children and neighbours as well. An intimate portrait of a community searingly damaged by traditions, this is a densely imagined, beautiful and deeply troubling book written in heightened prose saturated with imagery. It casts a deep gaze on themes as timeless as love, nationalism and religion, while meditating on how these forces drive us apart.

Une descente aux enfers dans le gouffre irakien. Un plaidoyer pour le triomphe de l'humanisme. " Le coup parti, le sort en fut jeté. Mon père tomba à la renverse, son misérable tricot sur la figure, le ventre décharné, fripé, grisâtre comme celui d'un poisson crevé... et je vis, tandis que l'honneur de la famille se répandait par terre, je vis ce qu'il ne me fallait surtout pas voir, ce qu'un fils digne, respectable, ce qu'un Bédouin authentique ne doit jamais voir - cette chose ramollie, repoussante, avilissante, ce territoire interdit, tu, sacrilège: le pénis de mon père... Le bout du rouleau! Après cela, il n'y a rien, un vide infini, une chute interminable, le néant... " Connu et salué dans le monde entier, Yasmina Khadra explore inlassablement l'histoire contemporaine en militant pour le triomphe de l'humanisme. Après Les Hirondelles de Kaboul (Afghanistan) et L'Attentat (Israël; Prix des libraires 2006), Les Sirènes de Bagdad (Irak) est le troisième volet de la trilogie que l'auteur consacre au dialogue de sourds opposant l'Orient et l'Occident. Ce roman situe clairement l'origine de ce malentendu dans les mentalités.

Love is not consolation, it is light.' From the author of Maps for Lost Lovers comes a searing, exquisitely written novel set in Pakistan and Afghanistan in the months following 9/11 - a story of war, of one family's losses, and of the simplest, most enduring human impulses. Jeo and Mikal, foster-brothers from a small Pakistani city, secretly enter Afghanistan: not to fight with the Taliban, but to help and care for wounded civilians. But it soon becomes apparent that good intentions can't keep them out of harm's way... From the wilds of Afghanistan to the heart of the family left behind - their blind father haunted for years by the death of his wife, by the mistakes he may have made in the name of Islam and nationhood, Jeo's steadfast wife and her superstitious mother - Aslam's prose takes us on an extraordinary journey.

Marcus Caldwell, and English widower and Muslim convert, lives in an old perfume factory in the shadow of the Tora Bora mountains in Afghanistan. Lara, a Russian woman, arrives at his home one day in search of her brother, a Soviet soldier who disappeared in the area many years previously, and who may have known Marcus’s daughter. In the days that follow, further people arrive there, each seeking someone or something. The stories and histories that unfold, interweaving and overlapping, span nearly a quarter of a century and tell of the terrible afflictions that have plagued Afghanistan—as well of the love that can blossom during war and conflict.
