A collection of short stories written by renowned Egyptian author Youssef Rakha. Many of the stories have appeared previously in journals from the UK, US and MENA region. In these Cairo-focused stories written at the height of the Arab Spring, in its wake and its ruins, the reader is led by a colorful cast of characters through a hypnagogic urbanscape pulsating with the specters of post-political Islam and failed revolution.
