Khaled Khalifa

"No Knives in the Kitchens of This City" is not just a novel, but rather a deep dig into the mechanisms of fear and disintegration during half a century. It is also a novel about a society that lived in parallel with oppression and murdered desires, through the biography of a family that discovered that all its dreams died and turned into rubble, just as a corpse was transformed. The mother is a scrap that must be disposed of so that others can continue to live. A novel written with shocking sensitivity and a fine language that takes its readers from the first pages to basic questions and puts them before the realities of the devastation of Arab life in light of the regimes that violated their lives and destroyed their dreams. It is a novel about the dilemma of life in its deepest meanings, in which he returns The novelist Khaled Khalifa, after his masterpiece "Praise of Hatred" to write publicly, the dilemma of life in its deepest meanings, and writes about everything that is silent about him in our Arab life and Syrian life in particular... It is a novel about sorrow, fear and human death.
