Item description for Baghdad, Mon Amour: A Journey of Exile and Return by Salah Al Hamdani & Sonia Alland...

Baghdad, Mon Amour is a memoir by Salah Al Hamdani centered on his imprisonment under Saddam Hussein, his subsequent exile in France for more than thirty years, and his emotional return to Baghdad and seeing his family again after all those years with feelings of tremendous joy but also guilt for having "abandoned" them. The beauty of Al Hamdani's prose and poetry is skillfully captured in Sonia Alland's translation.

Salah Al Hamdani, poet and French actor from Iraq, was born in 1951 in Baghdad. He has lived in exile in France for the last thirty years. He started writing as a political prisoner in Iraq around the age of twenty. He is also the author of numerous works in both Arabic and French.

Sonia Alland lives in both New York City, where she is a longtime public school volunteer, and southern France. She has been translating the works of the French writer Marie Bronsard and has also participated in her husband's anthropological research in both France and Catalonia, Spain.

Reviews - What do customers think about Baghdad, Mon Amour: A Journey of Exile and Return?

To any who wants to understand an Iraqi's love for his homeland.  Aug 10, 2008
Imprisoned and forced away from his home, author Salah Al Hamdani savors what Americans take for granted. "Baghdad Mon Amour" is an anthology of his writings, offering readers a unique perspective on the people of Iraq from one of their own. Impoverished as a youth, imprisoned as an adult, and exiled afterwards to France, Salah Al Hamdani will open his readers' eyes with writings that span the gamut from poetry to fiction to other mediums. Skillfully translated from the original French by Sonia Alland, "Baghdad Mon Amour" is highly recommended to any who wants to understand an Iraqi's love for his homeland.
