Passionate multi-cultural romantic fiction echoes its author's experiences, revealing the challenges and injustices suffered by those from different cultures and religions as they make their way in Britain today. Issum is an Anglo-Egyptian man, torn between his disparate cultural identity and heritage. Unable to identify with either his British side or his Egyptian heritage, Issum oscillates between the two, never feeling accepted or at home within either tradition. Each culture is suspicious of Issum in its own way, rejecting him for not being pure and uncomplicated. Unable to settle culturally, Issum wanders through his early life, never achieving his full potential. Turning forty brings with it an epiphany of sorts; he qualifies as a teacher and meets an older woman whom he quickly marries. Perhaps he can find a sense of purpose and identity through marriage? Driven by compassion and responsibility, Issum is motivated to help cure his new wife of her terrible addiction to alcohol, but his efforts prove to be in vain. Once again finding himself alone, broke and on the move, Issum moves to Vietnam for work, hopeful that a new life in an exotic country will bring with it the clarity and the direction he desperately seeks. Issum finally meets the woman of his dreams, Ismahane, who shares his cultural identity crisis, herself torn between her Middle Eastern heritage and Western upbringing. Together the couple excitedly plan their future together, which will have to be temporarily put on hold while Ismahane travels abroad to become an Algerian diplomat. But as soon as she leaves Vietnam, Issum's future suddenly begins to look bleak once more, as a rivalry with a British colleague and a violent altercation loom on the horizon. Will Issum be able to overcome the injustices of his past in order to build for the future? Or is racial and religious prejudice hell-bent on sabotaging his chances of happiness. In his unsett

About the Author:

His fictional book illustrates multi-cutural romance and divides within his two inherited cultures. The reader is drawn into an unconventional life, which demonstrates the issues he has had to deal with, on a personal and political level. The style of writing varies from humorous, lighthearted, to serious and dark. Sherif Ebeid was born in 1965 in Cairo, Egypt. He is Anglo-Egyptian. He has lived an eccentric life and eventually decided on a teaching career path in his mid-thirties. He studied at John Moores University in Liverpool in the late 1990's and received his B.A. in TESOL and combined studies in 2000. Since then he has worked in various countries as an English teacher and is now based in Vietnam.

Book Description AuthorHouse UK, United States, 2012. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. It is based on an Anglo-Egyptian character, Issum, who has his parents inheritance stolen by his Egyptian uncle and sister at different times and in different countries. He feels no patriotism to either society yet is torn emotionally between the two cultures. Eventually at the age of forty, he becomes a professional teacher and marries an older alcoholic woman, out of compassion. He believes he can help cure her from her addiction and help her reach her true potential in life, by supplying her with the opportunities to do so. After three years of torment, anguish and disappointment he realises there is no hope, when she . He moves to Vietnam to continue working in his profession, to find that the country helps him to achieve one of his lifelong ambitions; falconry and breeding a variety of exotic birds. He becomes involved with another older woman who has herpes and has to deal with the STD without contracting it. Eventually they part, due to personality and cultural differences. He meets the woman of his dreams, Ismahine, who also is torn between the Middle Eastern and Western cultures. They have both had similar experiences in their upbringing, both dealt with alcoholic partners, emotional conflicts between the two cultures, and a genuine disappointment and disillusionment at how America and Britain deal with the Arabs and Islam. Ismahine leaves Vietnam to become an Algerian diplomat. Issum proposes to her, before she leaves and they arrange to meet up in June the following year, both full of hope for their future together. Issum s personnel and welfare officer, who is an arrogant, racist, condescending, sarcastic and egotistical British man, Keelie-Keech, makes his professional life unbearable through humiliation tactics and constant haranguing. Issum s anger reaches a murderous level. Realising Keelie-Keech represents everything he despises in the British society, he decides to leave the company. Seller Inventory # AAV9781468581997
