Syngué Sabour, pierre de patience = The patience stone by Atiq Rahimi( Visual )

6 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Adapted from the best-selling novel by Atiq Rahimi. It tells a story of a young woman watching over her older husband, in a country torn apart by war. A bullet in the neck has reduced him to a comatose state. One day, the woman's vigil changes. She begins to speak truth to her silent husband, telling him about her suffering, her dreams and her secrets. After years of living under his control, with no voice of her own, she says things she could never have spoken before. Her husband has unconsciously become syngué sabour (The Patience Stone)- a magical black stone that, according to Persian mythology, absorbs the plight of those who confide in it. The woman's confessions are extraordinary and without restraint. But after weeks of looking after her husband, she begins to act, discovering herself in a relationship she starts with a young soldier

In einer Stadt in Afghanistan kniet eine junge Frau an der Seite ihres schwer verletzten Mannes, der im Koma liegt. Im Zimmer ist es still, draussen sind Schüsse zu hören. Dann beginnt sie zu reden. Sie erzählt ihm, was sie vorher nie zu sagen wagte, von dem Drama, das die Ehe für sie bedeutet, ihren Wünschen und Geheimnissen. Er wird zu ihrem Stein der Geduld, der ohne zu urteilen alles in sich aufnimmt. Sie beschützt ihn, vor Kriegern und Bomben, und entdeckt dabei sich selbst. Doch wie viel kann ein Stein der Geduld ertragen, bevor er zerspringt? (Quelle:
