Lost in the Stacks

I read widely and compulsively and my fancies are ever changing. My love of reading, however, is no mere fancy.

The Patience Stone - Atiq Rahimi Wow. This is a little novel that packs a mighty punch. The anonymous wife of a comatose mujahadeen keeps him company day after day, waiting him to wake up or die. He is her 'patience stone'; the stone that made up the throne of Adam in heaven, that was given to men and women to tell their sorrows.

This was an exceptionally powerful book, giving voice to the struggles of Afghan women. I can't wait to read more of Atiq Rahimi's work. Highly recommended.
