Reading Tahmima Anam's second novel 'The Good Muslim'. A very interesting book.... How I wish I can write about what happened and is still happening in my own country just like her. Her first novel 'The Golden Age' that I read a few years ago is also very interesting. She always uses history as the background and the foreground of how her characters live.
This is a part from the novel: "My name is S.M. Haque, and I am here to tell you a few truths about our war. None of us is completely free of responsibility - not when we live in a country that is a living example of what we fought against - a Dictatorship, led by a man who cares nothing for this country, and a refusal to acknowledge the criminals who live among us. If we stand by and allow the crimes of the past to go unpunished, then we are complicit in those crimes. If the Dictator does not hole a trial for the war criminals, he too is a war criminal."
