The Attack Yasmina Khadra, 2005 (Trans. by John Collin, 2006) Knopf Doubleday 272 pp. ISBN-13: 9780307275707. Summary Dr. Amin Jaafari, an Arab-Israeli citizen, is a surgeon at a hospital in Tel Aviv. From the graphic, beautifully rendered description of the bombing that opens the novel to the searing conclusion, The Attack portrays the reality of terrorism and its incalculable spiritual costs. Intense and humane, devoid of political bias, hatred, and polemics, it probes deep inside the Muslim world and gives readers a profound understanding of what seems impossible to understand.
The Attack by Yasmina Khadra, translated by John Cullen 257pp, William Heinemann, £1. 9. The suicide bomber is easier to fathom as a weapon or act of propaganda than as a personality. If the bomber is a woman, killing other women and their children, the character is all the more baffling. Presented in a novel, her femininity is a source of heightened moral interest, a sort of turn of the screw. The book opens with Amin taking charge of the chaos in the emergency room after a suicide bomber attacks a fast-food restaurant in the Hakirya district of Tel Aviv, killing 19 people including a group of schoolchildren at a birthday party.

Darling, this is Younes. Yesterday he was my nephew, today he is our son'. Kurt Krausmann, a recently bereaved Frankfurt doctor, is persuaded to join his friend, wealthy benefactor Hans Makkenroth, on a humanitarian mission to the Comoros. The journey helps him begin to confront his loss, but soon misfortune strikes again: the boat he and Hans are travelling in is hijacked in the Gulf of Aden and the men are taken hostage.
But Yasmina Khadra is not really a female author. She is, in fact, a man and former officer in the Algerian Army who used a pen name to avoid military censorship - or that’s the explanation given on the about the author page in this book. Khadra has some 20 books to her name, but only four have been translated into English. The Attack, also shortlisted for the 2008 IMPAC Award, was (as far as I can gather) the second. This book was also shortlisted for the Prix Goncourt, the Prix Femina and the Prix Renaudot, and won the Prix de Libraires. So, my initial impression, that The Attack was by an author of some standing was pretty much on the money. The Attack is set in Israel and - surprise, surprise - it’s about a suicide bomber.
