I Think of You: Storiesby Ahdaf Soueif
Synopses & Reviews
Ahdaf Soueif, the bestselling author of The Map of Love, writes poignantly and beautifully about love, and about finding one’s place in the world. Achingly lyrical, resonant and richly woven, and with a spark of defiance, these stories explore areas of tension–where women and men are ensnared by cultural and social mores and prescribed notions of “love,” where the place you are is not the place you want to be. Soueif draws her characters with infinite tenderness and compassion as they inhabit a world of lost opportunities, unfulfilled love, and remembrance of times past.
A new collection of short fiction by the author of The Map of Love explores the often challenging worlds of men and women who are caught up in a web of social and cultural mores, prescribed ideas about love, lost opportunities, unfulfilled desire, and nostalgia, caught between the Arab world and the West. Original. 17,500 first printing.
Ahdaf Soueif was born in Cairo. She is the author of the bestselling novel The Map of Love, which was shortlisted for the Booker Prize in 1999, as well as Mezzaterra: Notes from the Common Ground and the novel In the Eye of the Sun. She also has translated from the Arabic the award-winning memoir I Saw Ramallah by Mourid Barghouti. She lives in London.
