Samenvatting

LAUGHING IN THE FACE OF TERRORISM is a collection of five books under a new title making the works affordable and a bargain for teachers and students of literature, culture, diversity seekers and the general public. The search for harmony is a main theme in Tejani’s work and here he speaks of it in words destined to be classic: Music has the sweetness of the September sun, the tenderness of a bird call in the woods, the depth of unknown oceans and the serenity of the earth’s swift strong glide across space. You will marvel at the incredibly comic mission of the new Indian immigrant in America to teach Americans how to speak English properly. Or rejoice in the friendship between Washington, America’s First President and a Muslim boy on Mount Rushmore. Even wonder at Shakespeare committing suicide on the stage. For variety, Tejani teases the women of the world by comparing their scent to the aroma of rain on earth; and exposes the vulnerability of men with satire on their pre-occupation with the 'thermostat between their legs'. In this collection Ba Tejani has set out with mischief in his heart, irreverent wisdom in his hands and a tickling, teasing imagination which carries you on with a smile and a large question. Just what is he upto? What gifts of humanist synthesis does he have in his heart that we emerge refined and delighted and not peeved after reading one of his stories or watching his play? 451 Pages
