About this item

Una poderosa historia, ambientada en Oriente Próximo, que muestra como la guerra, la religión, el odio y la venganza destruyen las vidas de inocentes convirtiéndolos en mártires.

Novela ganadora del Premio de los Libreros de Quebec y del Premio Literario Collégiens.


Cuando Amed llora, su hermano Aziz llora también; y cuando Amed ríe, su hermano Aziz ríe también. Ambos lo comparten todo en una pequeña tierra de Oriente Próximo, en la casa de sus padres y abuelos, donde el paraíso tiene forma de jardines frutales y naranjales.
Pero un día un obús rasga el cielo y separa personas, hermanos y sentimientos. A partir de entonces, la guerra será el trasfondo en el que dos hermanos tendrán que afrontar la desdicha de lo que significan palabras como "sangre", "venganza" y "mártir", olvidando el sueño de aquel paraíso perdido.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

Twin brothers Amed and Aziz live in the peaceful shade of their family’s orange grove. But when a bomb kills the boys’ grandparents, the war that plagues their country changes their lives forever. Blood must repay blood, and, in order to avenge their grandparents’ deaths, one brother must offer the ultimate sacrifice. Years later, the surviving twin ? now a student actor in a wintry Montreal ? is given a role which forces him to confront the past. Tremblay, an actor and director himself, poses the difficult question: can art ever adequately address suffering? Both current and timeless, written with the sharp purity of desert poetry, The Orange Grove depicts the haunting inheritance of war and its aftermath.
