Riad Sattouf

Arab of the Future

Arab of the Future part 02

€ 27.95

In The Arab of the Future :Volume 1, cartoonist Riad 'sattouf tells of the first years of his childhood as his family shuttles back and forth between France and the Middle East. In Libya and 'syria, young Riad is exposed to the dismal reality of a life where food is scarce, children kill dogs for sport, and his cousins, virulently anti-'semitic and convinced he is Jewish because of his blond hair, lurk around every corner waiting to beat him up. In Volume 2, Riad, now settled in his father?s hometown of Homs, gets to go to school, where he dedicates himself to becoming a true 'syrian in the country of the dictator Hafez Al-Assad. Told simply yet with devastating effect, Riad?s story takes in the sweep of politics, religion, and poverty, but is steered by acutely observed small moments :the daily sadism of his schoolteacher, the lure of the black market, with its menu of shame and subsistence, and the obsequiousness of his father in the company of those close to the regime.

As his family strains to fit in, one chilling, barbaric act drives the 'sattoufs to make the most dramatic of changes. Darkly funny and piercingly direct, The Arab of the Future, Volume 2 once again reveals the inner workings of a tormented country and a tormented family, delivered through Riad 'sattouf?s dazzlingly original talent.
