Han quemado el mar
National Award of Children's and Young Reader's Literature
War has once again swept from end to end of the country of The Thousand and One Nights. Tons of bombs have fallen relentlessly on Bassora and Baghdad. Yasin, the lute player who narrated ancient legends at festivities, has died in the ruins of a bunker during an attack by the allies and he will never know his son. Grandma Hafida, Yasin’s mother, explains the tales of a legendary land on which fate and the future have turned their backs to the future shadow of her unborn grandchild.
