In this powerful, debut collection of short stories, Rania Mamoun expertly blends the real and imagined to create a rich, complex and moving portrait of contemporary Sudan. From painful encounters with loved ones to unexpected new friendships, Mamoun illuminates the breadth of human experience and explores, with humour and compassion, the alienation, isolation and estrangement that is urban life.
Rania Ali Musa Mamoun (born 1979) is a Sudanese journalist, novelist and writer. She was born in the city of Wad Medani in east-central Sudan, and was educated at the University of Gezira.
