Original title: Le suïcide et le chant

“Gathered by the preeminent Afghan poet Sayd Bahodine Majrouh, this wonderful collection speaks for those silent Pashtun women, the anonymous Afghans who hold the world in their hearts, a great paean to the collective memory of time and place. Such a small but potent work of art speaks to all women who have known suffering—in love, in loss, and the terrible devastation of war.”
