Book Review: I am Ariel Sharon by Yara El-Ghadban

In this beautifully and poetically written work of fiction, El-Ghadban takes us inside the mind of Ariel Sharon, the controversial Israeli statement who plunged into a comma in 2006.

Like Greek furies, a series of women guide him through his past life, his victories and defeats, his passions and hatred. They are women he loved and women he didn’t get to know closely, but his life as a military man and warrior might have touched and wronged.

What I loved most is the beauty of the language, purely literary and lyrical. And I appreciated the opportunity to learn more about his life, though fictionalized, as one of the leading figures of the twentieth century.
