“He grew up with a large family, not using indoor plumbing and getting an education.”

Abdul Qayum Safi was born in Afghanistan where war seems to be perpetual. He grew up in a large family, in a house that had no indoor plumbing, and in a society where getting an education was difficult. He narrates such struggles in his memoir “One Life: An Afghan Remembers.”

After he was done outlining his life, Safi shifts the form of his book to focus on different themes. In one of his book’s chapters, Safi describes the traditional way of finding a partner in the Afghan culture and how he chose a different path – marrying an American woman. Another chapter also describes the Kuwaiti scholarship system and the differences in terms of higher education among some countries like Lebanon, the United States, and even Afghanistan.  Finally, Safi ends with a summary of the present political situation in Afghanistan and shares his opinions about how the country should progress.

The book’s chapters include interesting anecdotes from the author’s own life, and build-on stories that he has already told to give the readers a clear picture of why they matter.

The book “One Life: An Afghan Remembers” will be proudly displayed at the 2017 Sharjah Intl Book Fair which will take place this November 1, 2017.  Grab a copy now!
