Amir Darwish

From Aleppo Without Love: A true story of anguish and despair by a boy from Aleppo. The book is an autobiography of the British/Syrian–of Kurdish origin–writer and poet Amir Darwish. The scene for it is Aleppo, Syria where Amir was born and raised up to the age of eighteen. Amir finds himself in a contradicting, brutal to children, hateful and constantly violent familial milieu. As well as the personal account is given here, the book speaks of life in Aleppo in the 1980s and 1990s where Amir lived and experienced such a world.
