Hamdi. At Home in Beirut

Hamdi is sure of one thing: he wants to be a goalkeeper when he grows up. His big sister Zeina is happy to practice with him. But that’s all over when she gets married. Her husband Ali is a strict Muslim and doesn’t want a wife who plays football. From now on Zeina even has to wear a veil. Hamdi’s liberal family starts arguing more and more – until one day Israeli bombs fall on Beirut and everyone’s lives change…

A true story of everyday life in Lebanon through the eyes of a young football lover – a book full of vivid intensity despite all life’s crises, illustrated with brilliant, lively pictures.

All rights available except Dutch language.
