Continuing his quest for sense and beauty, Wajdi Mouawad has plunged into the turbulent depths of writing to discover, washed up midst the sand dunes, fiery tales lost in the mists of time. Making their way through the dunes are Nawal's twin children, Janine and Simon, who want to solve the mystery of their origins. In retracing the bitter history of their mother (enveloped in silence until her death), other characters come into the story - witnesses or key players able to assist in the investigation. Carried aloft by poetic language, the inquiry pursued by Janine and Simon unfolds in a dreamlike atmosphere that cultivates the mystery surrounding a knife thrust into the heart of childhood.

This book was a page-turner, every page left me wanting more. I love stories where seemingly different storylines eventually come together and all make sense. A great read. Read full review

I was shocked by this play. I don't want to give anything away but I will say, WOW. This is a play about discovering the truth behind the silence, and family bonds are tested. It was a great read and I would love to see this performed. Read full review
