9781846590252: Cairo Stories

Egypt is the setting for this collection, but the stories are universal—whether it’s the girl whose mother no longer recognizes her, a young man who uses the changing political climate to avenge his despotic father, or the woman consumed by guilt for abandoning her children. The characters throughout the stories unveil the scents and sensations of Cairo, from the early fifties to the present day.

Anne-Marie Drosso was born in Cairo in 1951. In 1974 she moved to Canada, where she studied law and worked as an appeal commissioner. She now lives in London.

About the Author:

Anne-Marie Drosso was born in Cairo in 1951. She left Egypt in her twenties for Canada, where she studied and taught; she has most recently lived in London. Her collection, Cairo Stories, was published by Telegram in 2007. She now lives in Monterey, California. This is her first novel.

Review:

'These elegant, unadorned narratives of Egyptians at home and at large, as variegated as the city from which they take their name, span classes, continents and decades with confidence and humour. We are in the company of a hugely promising and individual talent.' Aamer Hussein, author of Insomnia 'A beautiful portrait of life in Egypt. I strongly recommend it.' Alaa al Aswany, author of The Yacoubian Building 'While Drosso's prose remains earthbound, the tales are lively and dramatic, with a well-judged comic edge.' Mslexia This short story collection examining the inner lives of Egyptians at home and abroad is remarkable for its measured, delicate approach to its subjects...appealingly understated. An interesting collection.' Pulp.net

Book Description SAQI BOOKS, United Kingdom, 2007. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Egypt is the setting for this collection, but the stories are universal - whether it s the girl whose mother no longer recognises her, a young man who uses the changing political climate to avenge his despotic father, or the woman consumed by guilt for abandoning her children. Echoing V.S. Pritchett s words, they look for the silent moment in which our singularity breaks through, when emotions change, without warning, and reveal themselves. And while revealing themselves they also unveil the scents and sensations of modern Cairo, from the early 1930s to the present day. Bookseller Inventory # AAJ9781846590252
