Het huis van de moskee "The House of the Mosque"

£4.99

Product description

This copy is in Dutch. English synopsis follows after original untranslated variant:

'Het is zo'n boek dat je niet meer loslaat. Abdoloah vertelt over één enkel huis in den vreemde, en tegelijk gaat het over onz hele wereld.' - Geert Mak

Sinds achthondered jaar, generatie na generatie, heeft de familie van Aga Djan een centrale positie in de stad. Al zolang ze er wonen brengen ze de geestelijk leider van de moskee voort. De imam is een belangrijke man, maar zeker zo belangrijk is Aga Djan: een groot tapijthandelaar die aan het hoofd staat van de bazaar. De rechtvaardige koopman leeft volgens de richtlijnen van de Koran en gebruikt zijn macht voor het welzijn van de mensen om hem heen.
Als er een radicale stroming onder de ayatollahs ontstaat en Khomeini in Parijs een omwenteling voobereidt, komt de Iraanse samenleving onder druk te staan,
Vreienden worden vijanden. Liefde wordt haat, Zelfs Aga Djan kan het tij niet keren,


Welcome to the House of the Mosque . . . Iran, 1950. Spring has arrived, and as the women prepare the festivities, Sadiq waits for a suitor to knock on the door. Her uncle Nosrat returns from Tehran with a glamorous woman, while on the rooftop, Shahbal longs only for a television to watch the first moon landing. But not even the beloved grandmothers can foresee what will happen in the days and months to come. The household is set to experience great love and loss as it opens the doors to faith and politics. In this uplifting bestseller, Kader Abdolah charts the triumphs and tragedies of a family on the brink of revolution.
