Category: Tag:


A book in which the author proposes a story of “reverse migration”, at the opposite of what we hear today in the news. The story of her mother, German, settling in Lebanon in the 1960s and facing different challenges in order to find her place in a society that is not hers.By retracing the path of this woman and wondering about her identity, Lena Merhej gives us a reflection on belonging to a double culture.
It is also the subject of the transmission from one generation to another that is questioned over these pages where war is omnipresent, a rhythmic song of the lives of two women, mother and daughter.
