'Ahdaf Soueif is one of the most extraordinary chroniclers of sexual politics now writing' Edward Said 'A convincing and skilful writer' Sunday Times 'There is lively, lucid writing here, vivid description and sharply observed dialogue' The Times 'Highly unusual and richly impressive ... The author weaves a circle round us thrice with the touch of a born sorceress' GuardianVom Verlag:
In these selected stories from her collections "Aisha" and "Sandpiper", Ahdaf Soueif writes about love and displacement in prose that is delicately nuanced and acutely observed. These are achingly lyrical stories, resonant and richly woven. But they always retain an edginess as they explore areas of tension - where women and men are ensnared by cultural and social mores and prescribed notions of 'love', where the place you are is not the place you want to be. She delivers her characters with infinite tenderness and compassion as they inhabit a world of lost opportunities, unfulfilled love and remembrance of times past.
