Hey Pooh, suggest something to us from the Argentinian literature(?) or Argentinian writers. I'd be very interested. In fact, very very interested. And don't worry about the translation, I'll get someone to help me, don't worry, just name some of the writers/books.
Ok, what was the last (or current) book you are reading?
I've just finished International Politics of the Middle East, Raymond Hinnebusch (highly recommend it to anyone) and have just started Freya Stark's travel work on Luristan and "Assassin" country called Valley of the Assassins.
To be honest, I'm not that well read in Arabic. I only became interested in reading when I was in Uni, so most of what I've read is in English. However I did read a lot of teen crime novels in arabic when I was growing up, like the "13 devils" series. Anyone remembers them ?
Mahmoud Darwish books always deserve reading. I recommend "The memory of forgetting" "Dhakirt El-Nisian" I believe you would spend some good time getting what he is pointing to, but when you finish it you will read it again and again.
Do you guys know where can I order Arabic books over the internet? Is there an Arab equivalent to Amazon.com? Its highly unlikely that I'll be back in the ME any time soon, and I don't want to be waiting for 2-3 more years..
