The Attack: After a Bombing, a Masterful Thriller

Since it opens with a suicide bombing in downtown Tel Aviv , and since its mystery plot involves an attempt to track down a sheik whose public expectorations call for the slaughter of Israeli civilians, The Attack is most avowedly "about" terrorism. But that's a subject, not the subject. The film, an arresting and upsetting one, is also about love, trauma, and trust, both within one particular marriage and within entire cultures. ....+info

"The Swallows of Kabul" by Yasmina Khadra

Yasmina Khadra is the pen-name of Mohammed Moulessehoul, an Algerian ex-army officer who while still in the army used this pseudonym in order to avoid submitting his manuscripts for approval by the military censors, due to his notoriety which irritated his superiors. He was encouraged by his wife . ....+info

The Stoning

In charged, present-tense interior monologues, Khadra hurls these four lives at one another. He writes as a kind of village sage, a war veteran whose tales compel passers-by to stop and listen. His sentences are direct and urgent. (''Every now and then,'' we read about Mohsen, ''a mad desire to grab an iron bar and destroy everything in sight surges through him; curiously, however, as soon as he takes his head in his hands, his rage turns into an irresistible urge to burst into tears.'') Images recur: hands, in particular, have wills . ....+info


After 36 years in the Algerian military, Mohamed Moulessehoul knows all about war. But now that he's beaten his sword into a pen, it may prove mightier. Even before he left the Army to live in France, Moulessehoul had started writing under his wife's name to avoid military censors. That he continues to wear the feminine veil speaks volumes about this iconoclastic Islamic author. His latest novel is a surgical strike against fundamentalism more penetrating than anything the Pentagon could devise. ....+info
