Samar Yazbek’s new book ‘In her mirrors’

Samar Yazbek, author of ‘Clay’ and ‘Cinnamon’, has very recently published ‘In her mirrors’, that RAYA agency also represents for world translation rights.

Set in 2000 Syria in a 24 hour time frame, ‘In her mirrors’ has something of a modern Greek tragedy, telling the passionate love story that takes place between Laila, young beautiful actress and Said, man of power, both from Alaouite families historically opposed.
Through Laila’s belief in reincarnation proper to the Alaouite rite, the novel covers century of this religion’s violent history, tainted with the blood of persecution.
