Saq al-Bamboo ساق البامبو
By: Sanusi, Sa'ud (1981-) سعود السنعوسيShare

Language: Arabic

Softcover

لماذا كان جلوسي تحت الشجرة يزعج أمي؟ أتراها كانت تخشى أن تنبت لي جذور تضرب في عمق الأرض ما يجعل عودتي إلى بلاد أبي أمراً مستحيلاً؟..ربما، ولكن، حتى الجذور لا تعني شيئاً أحياناً.

لو كنت مثل نبتة البامبو.. لا انتماء لها.. نقتطع جزءاً من ساقها.. نغرسه، بلا جذور، في أي أرض.. لا يلبث الساق طويلاً حتى تنبت له جذور جديدة.. تنمو من جديد.. في أرض جديدة.. بلا ماض.. بلا ذاكرة.. لا يلتفت إلى اختلاف الناس حول تسميته.. كاوايان في الفلبين.. خيزران في الكويت.. أو بامبو في أماكن أخرى.

More Information

Description from Translated English Edition:
Josephine Mendoza escapes poverty by coming to Kuwait from the Philippines to work as a maid, where she meets Rashid, an idealistic only son with literary aspirations. Josephine, with all the wide-eyed naivety of youth, believes she has found true love. But when she becomes pregnant, and with the rumble of war growing ever louder, Rashid bows to family and social pressure, and sends her back home with her baby son, José.

Brought up struggling with his dual identity, José clings to the hope of returning to his father's country when he is eighteen. He is ill-prepared to plunge headfirst into a world where the fear of tyrants and dictators is nothing compared to the fear of 'what will people say.' And with a Filipino face, a Kuwaiti passport, an Arab surname and a Christian first name, will his father’s country welcome him?

The Bamboo Stalk takes an unflinching look at the lives of foreign workers in Arab countries and confronts the universal problems of identity, race and religion.
