Desert Flower (secondary title: The Extraordinary Journey of a Desert Nomad) is a book published in 1998, about the life of Waris Dirie, a crusader for social reform in Somalia, particularly as it applies to ritual female genital mutilation. This is one of the biggest problems for the female population in Somalia today.

This book embraces nomadic culture, and brings to life an amazing story about a young desert girl who raises up to be a highly esteemed fashion model.

The book has been translated into Dutch, German, French, Swedish, Slovene and Croatian and was followed by Desert Dawn and Desert Children.

Stephen King, Ray Bradburry, Chuck Polanick, J.Joys, Haruki Murakami, Graham Joys, Ira Levin and many others among sciense fiction, thrillers, mistics, detectives, psycological novels. These days I prefer to read in original language. Among Russian authors I like B.Akunin and V.Pelevin.

I am reading the third (and last) part of "The Wind-up Bird Chronicle" by Haruki. I love the work of Haruki, the first novel was "Kafka on the Shore". That's perfect. Then "Norwegian Wood" became my other favourite one.

Btw, I love novels, comics, history books…

I really like reading books side by side to each others.

My current list:

Ferenc Karinthy: Diary (1967-69)

Haruki: The Wind-up Bird Chronichle

Abercrombie: The Blade Itself


My greatest favourite is the Troy-trilogy by David Gemmell. 

Don't hesitate to read it! :)
