Silence and Tumult, Nihad Sirees

A hallucinatory tale where the comic prevails over the tragic, is the first text translated by Nihad Sirees in France. Born in Aleppo, Syria, in 1950, and qualified by the Middle Eastern press as a “Kafka Arab with humor,” Nihad Sirees is known in all Arab countries for his novels and television series, which present in an unprecedented way the lives of Syrians at different times in the history of their country.
