The Last Country

Antoine Douaihy

Selma Farah's sudden passing away was the first time the novel's narrator came face-to-face with death, and his life from that night would never be the same. But his tragedy had begun on the same night two years before, when his girlfriend Clara disappeared, on her way from the Royal Institute to a café just a few hundred metres away, where he was waiting for her. Her disappearance was a mystery impossible to fathom, since all the investigations showed that it was voluntary, not forced, and he was unable to discover why. Since then, his life has been devoted to the unrelenting and continual search for her.
