Kamal Jann (English) (Hardcover) Price: Rs.1519

In a world rife with deceit, the fortunes of the divided Jann family echo the conflicts tearing apart the Middle East, Syria in particular. Set in Damascus, New York, Beirut, Tel Aviv and Paris, Dominique Edde's gripping novel contains elements of a Greek tragedy--fratricide, strong women, alliances and misalliances of all hues, damaged lives and impossible loves. Betrayal is everywhere--members of the doomed Jann family plot against one another while CIA chief Weiner dupes his own agent, Jonathan Red. Similarly, in the Saudi Ben Zad family, cousins are at loggerheads and the British agent in the pay of head of the Syrian intelligence defects to Mossad. Women too stop at nothing in pursuit of their own ends. The influence of La Bardolina, the fortune-teller, is rivalled only by that of the 90-year-old Sitt Soussou, while her seemingly daughter Riwaya plays her own dark game. This is a decaying world undermined by decades of abuse and corruption, against which the Arab peoples rose in the spring of 2011.
The New York-based Syrian lawyer Kamal Jann enters into a Faustian pact with the CIA in a desperate attempt to avenge his parents' murder and to save his brother, Murad. Beneath the charm and reserve of this quiet man lies a vein of madness--"Jann," in Arabic, means to have gone mad. The time is that of urgency. It is the time of a collusion between an ancient past and a present sick of repeating itself and of the spread of blinkered Islamism. The space is that of the East fused with the West, mutually infiltrated and contaminated. Written in a language that is raw, powerful and rich in imagery, "Kamal Jann" has been hailed by the French critics as both universal and prophetic, a novel that is vital to our understanding of Syria and the Middle East.
