9780863563201: A Love Story

A Love Story is a poignant reflection on passionate, enduring love and the joys and tragedies of life. Through a sequence of dreams, flashbacks and conversations, Yacoub Iryan, a dying novelist, reflects upon his life, his achievements and his passionate, yet fleeting love affair with a married woman. Lying in his hospital bed, Iryan's conversations with his humorous nurse, Helen, his doctors and his fellow patients paint the picture of an intelligent and enlightened man obsessed with a memory that is fading as his body grows weaker.

About the Author:

Ghazi Algosaibi has published over twenty works in Arabic and is a writer of both poetry and prose.

Review:

'In this novel love has a generic, fabulous quality. Poignant and poetic, A Love Story provides the English reader with a view of an unfamiliar side of modern Saudi culture, one which is refreshingly at odds with the current climate of international misunderstanding.' TLS 'Reading A Love Story is a purely pleasurable experience. Algosaibi's language retains the lyrical freshness that comes from his poetry. A fragile and touching vision, with much gentle humour, it should be enjoyed in a single sitting and leave the reader wanting more.' Richard Woffenden, Cairo Times 'Imbued with the energy, originality, breadth of knowledge and sense of fun that reflect the author's own personality. The tone of A Love Story is contemplative and tender, its characters well drawn and convincing.' Susannah Tarbush, Saudi Gazette
