Resumen:

The World Is a Carpet: Four Seasons in an Afghan Village : Anna Badkhen first travelled to Afghanistan in 2001, as a war correspondent. She has returned many times since, drawn by a land that geography has made a perpetual battleground, and by a people who sustain an exquisite tradition there. Through the four seasons in which a new carpet is woven by the women and children of Oqa, she immortalises their way of life much as the carpet does - from the petal half-finished where a hungry infant needs care to the interruptions when the women trade sex jokes or go fill in for wedding musicians scared away by the Taliban.
