520    "In 2012, after the overthrow of Qaddafi, the acclaimed 
       novelist Hisham Matar journeys to his native Libya after 
       an absence of thirty years. When he was twelve, Matar and 
       his family went into political exile. Eight years later 
       Matar's father, a former diplomat and military man turned 
       brave political dissident, was kidnapped from the streets 
       of Cairo by the Libyan government and is believed to have 
       been held in the regime's most notorious prison. Now, the 
       prisons are empty and little hope remains that Jaballah 
       Matar will be found alive. Yet, as the author writes, hope
       is "persistent and cunning." This book is a profoundly 
       moving family memoir, a brilliant and affecting portrait 
       of a country and a people on the cusp of immense change, 
       and a disturbing and timeless depiction of the monstrous 
       nature of absolute power"--|cProvided by publisher.
