The real Afghanistan before your eyes... 19 Nov 2005
By BBNZO - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The author lived three years in Afghanistan, between 1994 and 2002 and he was a privileged witness of the rise and fall of the Taliban movement. Raich describes the worries, contradictions and fears of ordinary Afghans through an array of disparate characters and weird situations. A book full of passion, irony, wisdom and humour amid a population and a country in turmoil.
