ID: 978015603033

A sexy, intimate and fearless account of a shattering love affair between a charistmatic Afghan man and a Jewish American writer infatuated with his culture, The Book of Trouble is also a provocative and original exploration of the so-called clash of civilizations. Marlowe''s vivid, gritty evocation of daily life in Afghanistan brings to life a luminous place she thinks of as the morning of the world. She finds a similar re-discovery of feeling when she is in bed with Amir, the gift of loving someone, which is incalculable--but also, ultimately, aterrible gap between hearts.Marlowe finds complexity and beauty in Afghanistan, not the caricature of evil men and oppressed women. In fact, she found much that Americans can learn from in the warmth, tenderness and respect of Afghan family life and marriage. As Marlowe travels from Mazar-i-Sherif to her sophisticated, cynical New York world and then to Baghdad in the aftermath of the American invasion, she makes perhaps her most provocative claim: that we Americans, for all our self-help books, have forgotten how to take love and sex seriously.A candid, wrenching love letter to the world of feelings we have lost, The Book of Trouble is unique and unforgettable. Ann Marlowe, Books, Biography and Memoir, The Book of Trouble: A Romance Books>Biography and Memoir, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
