Synopsis

Set in the Nile-side neighborhood of Warraq, Aslan's novel chronicles the daily rhythm of the life of rural migrants to Cairo and their complex webs of familial and neighborly relations over half a century. In an elliptical narrative, Aslan limns a series of vignettes that mimic the workings of memory, moving backward and forward in time.
