The unvarnished truth.

this-blinding-absence-of-lightToday, I am so excited to direct you over to Ula’s world. As part of the Monday Inspiration series hosted on her blog, I have written a guest post on Tahar Ben Jelloun’s words – particularly the poignant tale of This Blinding Absence of Light – and the impact they have had on me over the years.

Ben Jelloun is a bold writer. He dares to say the truth and exposes it, however harsh and tainted it may be. That is what I have tried to do and that is what I will always strive for in my writing.

Click on to read my guest post and please do read beyond to discover the world of a broccoli addict.

Seriously though, her claim, not mine.


Thanks for reading.

  1. An inspiring review indeed Elissaveta. My inclination is always to the sunny view, and yet my country too has a dark history in the treatment of indigenous Australians. I had a charmed childhood while many kids my age were being removed from their families and put in homes where there was often abuse. You write so thoughtfully.

    • There’s always another side to the coin, isn’t there?
      I think you might like this book and the way Ben Jelloun writes. I have a feeling my writing has unconsciously grown from his (don’t read this as self-flattering but more as it being inspirational material)
      I would actually love to read a good book exploring the Australian culture. Do you have any recommendations in mind?
