Our disappeared were everywhere irresistible in waking in sleeping a reason for violence a reason for forgiveness destroying the peace we tried to possess creeping between us as we dreamed leaving us haunted by the knowledge that history is not redeemed by either peace or war but only fingered to shreds and left to our children The Disappeared is my very favourite type of book it introduced me to a new time and place I learned something using language that I found to be spare and beautiful and conseuently I felt something In addition I love books that go from what is familiar to me St Joseph s Oratory in Montreal to what is foreign a marketplace in Phnom Pehn Throw in big themes of love and death and memory and what s not to like As the book opens we learn that the narrator is recording the events of thirty years earlier when as a girl of sixteen she met Serey the great love of her life who was a Cambodian exile sent abroad to study and now unable to return home during the murderous reign of Pol Pot The narrative takes the form of a love letter always referring to Serey as you as Anne Greves remembers their early days together and the strain that it placed upon her relationship with her father a distant man an immigrant himself who was forced to raise Anne alone when his wife died young A girl understands with her first lover that there is no daughter who does not betray the father there are only great crashing waves of the woman to come gathering and building and breaking and thrashing the shore I watched my body s swelling and aching and flowing and shrinking as a sailor watches the changing surface of the waves I let you do anything I did anything I wanted and the dirty sheets of Bleury Street became my world Set against Anne s naive and urgent love is Serey s concern for his family As a musician he plays for her a two stringed chapei singing traditional folk songs and lullabies that recall the smokey blues they enjoy at Montreal clubs Where Anne is open and effusive Serey is reserved and respectful his family never far from his thoughts he having had no news of them for the four years of Pol Pot s Killing Fields I tried to telephone and the operator said there were no lines to Cambodia I went to the post office to send a wire No lines I gave the clerk a letter to mail and she said I m sorry There is no service I dropped the letter in a mailbox outside anyway and four days later it came back to me with a stamp undeliverable Do you know what it means to send a letter to your family and read that it is undeliverable When Serey learns that the Vietnamese have invaded Cambodia and reopened its borders he rushes back home to find news of his family insisting that Anne wait for word from him And word never comes Eleven years later Anne thinks she sees Serey at the edge of a crowd on TV and finally she goes in search of him This is not really a spoiler as the opening paragraph sees Anne arriving in Phnom PehnOnce she s on the ground Anne finally faces the reality of a country that has lost a uarter of its population to genocide As in Montreal Anne discovers that love and death in Cambodia are never far apart from each other and by introducing a fellow Montrealer whose job it is to exhume mass graves and count the victims author Kim Echlin is able to organically pepper her story with the appalling facts of this atrocity Why do some people live a comfortable life and others live one that is horror filled What part of ourselves do we shave off so we can keep on eating while others starve If women children and old people were being murdered a hundred miles from here would we not run to help Why do we stop this decision of the heart when the distance is three thousand miles instead of a hundred That s all the plot I ll record because much of the pleasure in reading this small book is derived from the discoveries along the way There is also much pleasure to be found in the writing itself consistently poetic and controlled Her eyes held my grief and her body gathered in my pain and knit it into herself as if she were an old marsh creature weaving baskets from rushes I recognise that a sentence like that won t be to everyone s taste but it satisfies mine Reading a book like The Disappeared feels like a bit of a rebuke Pol Pot was in power just forty years ago and even today Cambodia is ruled by a superficial democracy Hun Sen has been Prime Minister since 1985 but who remembers the Killing Fields Who gives a thought for Cambodia today despite its dismal rankings on all international rankings

summary The Disappeared Kim Echlin ã 3 free read free download ´ eBook or Kindle ePUB ã Kim Echlin Ll or turn to stone inside”From its first page The Disappeared takes us into the land of kings and temples fought over for generations It reveals the forces that act on love everywhere family politics forgetting Universal in its uestions about how to claim the past how to honor our dead and how to go on after those we love disappear it is a story written in spare and rhythmic prose The Disappeared is a remarkable consideration of language truth justice and memory that speaks to the conscience of the world and to love even when those we love most are gone . This was amazing Beautifully written the novel follows a Canadian named Anne as she travels to Cambodia to find her lost lover after the genocide in Cambodia While very hard hitting and as so many others have said haunting I could not put this book down I grew very attached to Anne as she retold the story of her and her lover Serey I highly recommend this novel it was an engaging love story that also brought to light the horrendous slaughter of millions of people in Cambodia under the dictatorship of Pol Pot
