AUC Press's Description
Set during the 1930s, in the small town of Tarrana in the Nile Delta region of Egypt, Stones of Bobello revolves around nine episodes in the life of a sensitive young Christian boy. Its montage of philosophical, mystical, and psychological perspectives highlights various struggles—between man and woman, Copt and Muslim, dream and reality.
The narrative unfolds in a moving, lyrical language that exalts the most mundane of events, and brings to life the torpid climate of the Delta. Its richness endows the book with moments of erotic fantasy, creating an imaginative space where dreams and memories flourish.
“More Proust than Durrell, and I think worthy of the comparison.”—Doris Lessing, The Independent
“A rich and rare achievement, gem-clear, mysteriously shimmering.”—The Guardian
