Event Code: 703
Location: Cheese & Grain
Description: Two amazing debut novels. In Letters from a Kurd, Kae Bahar tells the story of Marywan, a Kurd growing up under Saddam Hussein, whom he secretly nicknames Qayishbaldar - the monster. His life turns into a dark, roller-coaster ride of savagery, love and heroism which makes the movies he adores seem trivial by comparison. Jim Dales' 'The Man in the Mirror' revolves around the life of Rembrandt, seen through the eyes of an assistant, collectors and the women in his life. They are mirrors through which we glimpse a flawed human being who is known as one of the greatest artists in Western culture.
