About this product
- DescriptionA Sudanese writer begins to suspect that one of his most idiosyncratic characters from a recent vel resembles - in an uncanny, terrifying way - a real person he has never met. Since he condemned this character to an untimely death in the vel, should he attempt to save this real man from a similar fate? Set in both sides of Khartoum - the bustling capital city and the neglected, poverty-stricken underbelly - this is a vel of unreliable narrators, of insane asylums and of the dubious relationship between imagination and reality.
