Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: << Uno de cada tres afganos está muerto, en el exilio o vive en un campo de refugiados, y el mundo se mantiene totalmente indiferente. Desde el instante en que uno llega a Peshawar queda envuelto por Afganistán, su enormidad, el horror y la tristeza. Cada afgano que conoces, sea refugiado o muyahid, es una tragedia; cada uno es un ruego: ¡Ayúdanos, ayúdanos!>>, escribe Doris Lessing, Premio Nobel de Literatura 2007, en este libro, fruto de su viaje a Peshawar -Pakistán- con intención de comprobar por sí misma la realidad de un pueblo pisoteado durante los años de la invasión rusa, indagar en las condiciones de vida de los refugiados y de los muyahidin, además de verificar el rumor sobre la existencia de mujeres combatientes en el frente de la Resistencia afgana. A través de sus contactos con mulás y muyahidin, de sus conversaciones con médicos, emires, viudas y huérfanos, Doris Lessing nos ofrece un documento tan apasionante como estremecedor. / ""One of each three Afghans is dead, in the exile or living in a field of refugees, and the world stays completely indifferent. From the instant one arrives to Peshawar one is wrapped by Afghanistan, its enormity, the horror and the sadness. Each Afghan that you know, be a refugee or a muyahid, is a tragedy; each one is a request: Help us, help us!"", writes Doris Lessing, Nobel Prize of Literature 2007, in this book, born out of her trip to Peshawar -Pakistan- with the intention of seeing by herself the reality of a town trapped during years of Russian invasion, to investigate the conditions of the refugees' life and that of the muyahidin, besides verifying the rumor on the existence of women combatants in the front of the Afghan Resistance. Through her contacts with mulás and muyahidin, her conversations with doctors, emirs, widows and orphans, Doris Lessing offers us a passionate and disturbing document.
