Reunion with the Colonel

Aisha La Rosa is stained by history. Born to parents expelled from Libya after the 1969 Libyan coup d'etat, her identification between conflicting national boundaries torments her in a Europe haunted by political violence.

Aisha does the unthinkable. She returns to Tripoli in 1986, joined by a friend and armed with a pen. An agenda to rehabilitate Libya’s image has her searching for a country that no longer exists.

Aisha believes Libya is more than Muammar Gaddafi. The stains have set in deeper than she thinks; the embrace of idyllic childhood memories and a friend’s console may not be enough to keep her from entangling with the history she seeks to surmount.
