    I m currently taking a literature course at university all about intercultural authors, meaning authors who migrated to Germany and despite German being only their second or third language still writing and publishing in it The course is super interesting and I love discovering all of these cool authors that I ve never heard from before I m not the biggest fan of German lit you guys know I almost never read it but that might change I love reading German lit from this different perspect I m currently taking a literature course at university all about intercultural authors, meaning authors who migrated to Germany and despite German being only their second or third language still writing and publishing in it The course is super interesting and I love discovering all of these cool authors that I ve never heard from before I m not the biggest fan of German lit you guys know I almost never read it but that might change I love reading German lit from this different perspective Der falsche Inder 2008 is the debut novel of Abbas Khider In a sophisticated interplay of revealing and concealing, the novel deals with such issues as who is allowed to tell and publish whose story and how directly one s own story can be told.The title character comes from Iraq and reports in fragmented form on his four year odyssey that ultimately led him to Germany In eight chapters, the author, who himself had to flee Iraq at the end of the 1990s, tells of the horrors of a refugee life, of uncertain origins and shaken identity In an interview the author said I am someone who cannot cope well with the past I switch off memories of people who were once close to me I have built a wall around me and live behind it like a lonely creator Anyone who brings me anything unpleasant from the past has to stay outside Der falsche Inder is a novel, fairy tale, tale from the Arabian Nights, short story and autobiography all in one A frame story holds it all together At the beginning, Khider s narrator Rasul Hamid finds a manuscript written in Arabic on the ICE train, whose eight chapters tell the life story of a certain Rasul Hamid childhood and youth in Baghdad, oppositional activities, arrest, prison, the flight through Libya, Jordan, Tunisia, Turkey, Greece and Italy, and then the arrival in Germany In the eight chapters of the manuscript the first person narrator is almost always up to his neck in water Each chapter revolves around central aspects of identity origin, memory, desire, language and writing, faith, loss of self and megalomania, remembrance of the dead Khider always embeds these powerful themes in the path of life between Baghdad and exile.The chapter Writing and Losing is about the lust for writing, a dangerous activity in Iraq, which made the narrator invent secret languages and unfortunately forget them again It is not the first time he loses his poems, but in Germany, the computer manages to save him.Rasul reads the story of his own life in amazement, and sees that it is told exactly as he would have done it himself The inner story ends with a quotation, which is also the motto and dedication of the short novel as a whole For those who dream of two wings a second before death At the end he sends the manuscript to a publisher Khider flawlessly links literature and life together.All in all, I really enjoyed this tale It was completely original and unique in its form and narrative structure Even though I was irritated by some portions in this book and some views held by our protagonist, I still found it fascinating to engage with his thoughts and all that he went through This book also opened by eyes to the fact that immigration from the Middle East to Germany has a long tradition and has been going on for decades now The topic has resurfaced in recent years due to the civil war in Syria somehow I never thought of people like Khider who came to Germany in the 90s when I was a small child Super interesting perspective and I would love to readby him

    Abbas Khider s debut novel, drawing heavily on his own experiences, follows the story of an Iraqi refugee who flees his home country after being imprisoned under Saddam Hussein s regime and eventually makes his way to Germany Split into eight parts, each telling various aspects of his journey in different ways, the structure of this book being chronologically all over the place took a little effort to get into but ended up feeling strangely fitting to this tale.

    Seagull books are most interesting There is something about the list that makes you want to read everything they publish Their fiction is superlative Their non fiction mesmerizes you as a reader Their concepts and what they choose to publish is beyond anything that I have seen come from other publishers So when I started reading The Village Indian by Abbas Khider, I knew I had struck gold The Village Indian is not an easy read in the sense that it is difficult to get your teeth into Seagull books are most interesting There is something about the list that makes you want to read everything they publish Their fiction is superlative Their non fiction mesmerizes you as a reader Their concepts and what they choose to publish is beyond anything that I have seen come from other publishers So when I started reading The Village Indian by Abbas Khider, I knew I had struck gold The Village Indian is not an easy read in the sense that it is difficult to get your teeth into yes it is a difficult read from the look of it, but when you immerse yourself in the book then you cannot get out of it, till it is done and finished with The novel though is drawn from the author s experiences as a political prisoner and the years he spent as a refugee It will not be easy for some to stomach this, but there is no sugar coating in this book at all The hero Rasul Hamid describes the eight different ways in which he fled his home in Iraq and how in those eight different times he failed to find himself a new way home This is the summary of the plot so to say but there are so many layers to this book that will take you by surprise and throw you off guard The humour bites you and at the same time it has you wondering about the refugee condition and what happens to those who do not make it what about the people living on the margins Do they have a future at all Khider s writing is razor sharp and doesn t miss a beat in any sentence or page for that matter It is a joyride of a novel that takes you through various turns and twists, and at the same time at some level makes you see what the world really is like, and surprisingly I was a little hopeful, a little bittersweet and a whole lot of happy after reading this book

    Abbas Khider s book is called a novel, rather than a fictionalized memoir or autofiction Autofiction seems to mefitting to structure and writing of the story a man s efforts to escape his homeland and to flee to safety in Europe, told eight times in variations of his failures and successes and the encounters with others he meets an route I found it interesting to read, rather than engaging but relevant in the current refugee crises focused on Europe.

    Abbas Khider writes nicely, poetically, sadly, funny he is a complete writer his story must be read from all of us, it is a lesson of open mindness and antirassismus Very innovative construct of the novel Das Leben ist wie Wasser, das man nicht mit der Hand greifen und festhalten kann Du Kannst nur mittendurch tauchen Das Leben ist wie eine Wand Du musst mit dem Kopf dagegen schlagen, um zu verstehen, was die Wahrheit ist Die sch nsten Wege sind die, die ihr Ziel nicht erreichen

    Es fiel mir auf Grund der Chronologie sehr schwer in dieses Buch reinzukommen, ab der 60 Seite hat es mich dann aber richtig gepackt Es wird im zweiten Teil des Buches die Perspektive aus Sicht eines Fl chtlings mit allen H hen und Tiefen sehr gut veranschaulicht.
