Drumbeat (Paperback)Mohamed El-Bisatie (author)
- We can order this
As though steered by a perverse blend between Dante and Scheherazade, we descend layer by layer beneath the fa ade of modernity: from the colorful multilingual throngs rejoicing for the Emirati team to the hierarchies that underpin them, from the luxurious gardens and swimming pools into the darker secrets of the bedroom, from the rigid and inhibiting strictures of the present to a remote age of innocence. Three narratives interweave to form a tight and thought-provoking examination of the psychology of control.
Drumbeat received the Sawiris Foundation Award for Egyptian Literature.
