"It's a well-translated book by a Syrian author who currently resides in Dubai. Narrated in first person by a movie maker visiting Syria and his childhood hometown to make a movie that's supposed to serve as the bridge between East & West, Sarmada has so far excited me w/ its casual narrative style and nicely-jumpy plot structure. Btw, it strangely doesn't read like a novel set in a land unknown to me that is Syria." Feb 26, 2013 08:37PM

This is in my opinion the best translation of Song of Roland that I've read. I've read two earlier translations, but they are probably not for me. This translation is just right for the post-9/11 America, which is marked by the increase of interest i ...more
