La Yamoot: A Memoir

Author: Rashid Shaz

La Yamoot is an Arabic phrase meaning who he is not dying. Shaz’s prose is so eloquent, effective, lucid, and flowing that one cannot help except to read the book in one go, so the 428 pages I did read in three days, and this is with my other engagements. La Yamoot is autobiographical narration, but it is the story of an entire generation. Reading this story from the events of independence to 1990, step by step, I realized that Muslims are facing a war of survival in this country, but the poor and helpless lot is not aware of how to cope with this challenge.
