Parvana, une enfance en Afghanistan
(The Breadwinner)

by Nora TWOMEY

Parvana 3

In Afghanistan, under the Taliban regime, 11-year-old Parvana is growing up in war-ravaged Kabul. She likes listening to the stories told by her father, a public reader and scribe. But one day, he is arrested and Parvana’s life changes forever. Without being accompanied by a man, it is impossible for her to work, earn money or even buy food. So Parvana decides to cut her hair and dress as a boy so that she can help her family. At the risk of being unmasked at any moment, she is determined to find a way to save her father. Parvana is a marvellous tale about women’s emancipation and imagination in the face of oppression.
