Description

 


 


Syria - a country at war.


Amid the horror and the brutality, three people, each with different reasons for being there, find themselves increasingly at odds with the authorities.


Hammoudi - a surgeon, returning to his homeland to renew his passport.


Amal - a young actress, eager to make her name.


Youssef- an aspiring director and already marked out as an enemy of the regime.


As each of them take up a role in the resistance, they encounter the sharp edge of the authorities' wrath. Soon they have no choice but to flee their homeland, facing untold dangers in a desperate bid to survive. City of Jasmine is an intimate and striking novel that offers real insight into the brutality of war and the humanity of many of those caught up in its horrors. An instant bestseller in Germany, it marks out Olga Grjasnowa as one of the most talented and admired young authors working there today.
