Egypt is the setting for this collection, but the stories are universal—whether it's the girl whose mother no longer recognizes her, a young man who uses the changing political climate to avenge his despotic father, or the woman consumed by guilt for abandoning her children. The characters throughout the stories unveil the scents and sensations of Cairo, from the early fifties to the present day.
Anne-Marie Drosso was born in Cairo in 1951. In 1974 she moved to Canada, where she studied law and worked as an appeal commissioner. She now lives in London.
