Nothing is more difficult than to be free
Alali tells of a Syrian couple who are in love. When he is severely wounded and disappears, she sets off on the danger- ous journey to Europe. Abroad she meets one of his closest friends. Her story appears to have reached a turning point, nothing is improbable in the turmoil of this century.Alali’s extremely emotional debut novel is about loss and exhaustion, of how the war steals away one’s Heimat – but not the hope, the optimism, the power of resistance. It is a gripping and forceful book about loneliness and exile. Angela Merkel’s term ‘We can do it’ has an existential meaning to Alali’s heroes.
