Synopsis

In this lyrical novel, the stories of three pairs of lives converge on the mercurial presence of the lake, which in the end proves the narrative's true hero. An accomplished experiment in the poetics of space, "Clamor of the Lake" won the 1995 Cairo International Book Fair Award for Best Novel of the Year.
