Book Description:

The small boy was trying to climb over the wall surrounding the labyrinth that he wanted to leave, when he heard the elderly people back home shouting and telling him to go back to bed. His grip on the wall loosened and he fell to the ground waking up from his dream to find himself 70 years older in his usual armchair at home watching the people around him involved in their busy discussion. His problem of not hearing well sometimes placed him in a cage without bars whenever he happened to be in a big group. The dream in the labyrinth put on different masks; he waded through different surroundings crowded with people who – having different problems themselves – ended up by facing the same isolation that, to different degrees, left them politely ignored by others. Coming out of the labyrinth he found out that whatever realities were in his dream, they had evaporated. Ibrahim Yared's novel asserts that the beauty in life does not evaporate

Book Description SAQI BOOKS, United Kingdom, 2003. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. The small boy was trying to climb over the wall surrounding the labyrinth when he heard the elderly people back home shouting at him to go back to bed. His grip on the wall loosened and he fell, awaking from his dream to find himself now seventy years older, seated as usual in his armchair watching people around him involved in busy discussions. His problem of not hearing well sometimes placed him in 'a cage without bars' whenever he happened to be in a big group. The dream of the labyrinth took on different aspects: he waded through multiple environments crowded with people who, coping with different problems themselves, faced the same isolation that left them all politely ignored by others. Coming out of the labyrinth, he found that the circumstances of his dream had evaporated. All the same, the beauty in life does not evaporate . Seller Inventory # AAJ9780863565021
