Description
Information
"On warm April evening in 1984, in a pleasant suburb of Cairo called Zamalek, three exquisite young men tried to kill me. A dance with knives and a pricking at the throat that began with a coffee at Groppi's and ended, not with a severed wind-pipe, but, oddly enough, with my finding a voice."

So begins Robert Dessaix's acclaimed account of an extraordinary life. Adopted as a baby towards the end of World War II, Robert grew up haunted by a "shaft of silence" surrounding the question of his natural mother's identity, of his identity and sexuality.

Robert Dessaix, author of 'Night Letters' has created in 'A Mother's Disgrace' a frank and intimate memoir of his journey of self-discovery, a compelling "tale without an ending."
