وصف المنتج

"خايلتني زوجتي والنوم يأخذني. جاءت كما رأيتها لدى ذهابي في إجازة. كنت واقفاً وسط الحقائب. أقبلت مهرولة، خجلة من الفرحة التي غمرتها، تنظر هنا وهناك حتى لا تلتقي عيونناً. تلبس جلباباً خفيفاً بدون كم، مفتوح الصدر، يشف عن انسياب فخذيها. متأهبة لترمي نفسها في حضني... وقفت ساكناً.. أخشى الحركة. كم افتقدت هذه اللحظة...".

مرة أخرى يقف بنا محمد البساطي في هذه الرواية على الحدود بين الواقع والخيال، في مهارة لا يجيدها إلا القليلون، إنها رواية عن الغربة التي تسحب الروح، وتلمس واقعاً لا يقتصر على المصريين بل يشاركهم فيه أبناء شعوب أخرى.


"In a fictional Gulf country, with its gleaming glass towers and imported greenery, the routine of day-to-day life is suddenly interrupted when the national football team qualifies for the World Cup. The Emir issues an edict ordering all native Emiratis to travel to France to support the team, leaving the country to the care of its imported labor. How do they handle such newly found freedom? As though steered by a perverse blend between Dante and Scheherezade, we descend layer by layer beneath the façade of modernity: from the colorful multilingual throngs rejoicing for the Emirati team to the hierarchies that underpin them, from the luxurious gardens and swimming pools into the darker secrets of the bedroom, from the rigid and inhibiting strictures of the present to a remote age of innocence. Three narratives interweave to form a tight and thought-provoking examination of the psychology of control." (description from the English translation of the novel)
