Product description

Product Description

THE LIBYAN is an unforgettable memoir, told with raw honesty and an eye for detail. This stunning memoir sweeps four continents and several decades, from colonial Singapore through Europe and the United States, to Libya.
A poignant saga of historical and cultural wealth, it transports the reader on an exciting journey of passion, terror and betrayal, chronicling a slice of Libya during the early years of Gaddafi’s dictatorship.
An extraordinary narrative with a surprise ending, THE LIBYAN provides a rare look into an obscure culture and a young mother’s journey of love into a chaotic world of political intrigue.

"Kofod is a brilliant observer of detail and perceptive in her descriptions of character... Her love for Libya is evident and she presented a vivid account of its modern history through the eyes of Lina and Kamal."
-Libya TV (English)

"The Libyan offers a unique perspective on living under one of the worst dictatorships of the 20th century...Kofod fluently weaves a tale of romance with her own observations of Libya to produce this gripping novel."
-Tripoli Post, Libya

"Ms. Kofod has a strong voice and a heck of a story which she tells with integrity and feeling."
-Ethan Chorin, Author
Translating Libya

"The story never strays from its sharp edge... This is a good read. Fast paced in style, exciting in drama, and sweeping in time and geography"
-C. Peter Ripley, History Professor Emeritus, Author, Conversations With Cuba

"A fascinating, and at times, harrowing account of one woman's life in Libya during the early years of the Gaddafi regime."
-Bronwen Griffiths, Author, A Bird In The House
