Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

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.
