Bread And Sugar Water (by Abi Kobe Zar) - Amazon Review


I have read this book in the quickest time ever as it was very interesting. It also help to understand human feeling something which is lost nowadays, if you look for a better future than you should understand how people may think and feel, something which may be carried from your own culture may hurt somebody else. As someone against racism I have learnt something very important from this book.

Abi Kobe Zar

Abdul Zar is an Italian-Ghanaian human rights activist and lawyer specialized in international law. Bread and Sugar Water is his first novel. It is a work that arises from the desire to tell about life, to tell the extraordinary normality from the point of view of a black person in a white country. There are economic, social and political implications that come from being part of a minority and precisely because such most people fail to understand what one can feel (in this case) and wear such a wonderful color that the rest of society (knowingly or not) associates negative things. Prejudices that have survived over the years, rooted in the mind of those who have decided to see color before the person.

Andrea Manicardi

Andrea Manicardi was born at a very tender age on the last day of May 1968 in Carpi, in the beating heart of Emilia Rock-Magna, where he still resides and, despite his registration date, after the Sunset sometimes dribbles its professional commitments to run to perform on the stage of disreputable clubs in the company of other fugitives, dead or alive, from all the Conservatories of the Kingdom, thus nourishing the shadowy part of its curious, colorful and scarcely satiated soul.
During the day, however, for the past 24 years he has been practicing the profession of civil lawyer in his own law firm with unsuspected dedication and competence, mainly dealing with family law, civil liability and contracts.
He is passionate beyond all tolerable limits of decency of rock music, of Emilian cuisine, of the NFL, of literature of every race, model and displacement, of travel, mountain biking, history, cinema and Juventus.
He is the author of a respectable amount of song lyrics, none of which will ever reach the top of Spotify, and of a substantial tonnage of stories of various kinds, united by the worrying propensity to lose their tracks by camouflaging themselves on the bottom of the drawers scattered throughout.
