Stumbled on this thanks to the inimitable Mona Eltahawy. Incredibly vivid and powerful stories from someone who seems to understand life in Egypt for a muslim woman.
Much Ado About Nothing
Come for the hilarity of mistaken identity; stay for the fantastic puns and wordplay. Read it in advance of the OG's company's performance, and was glad to have done so.
Disappointing. A little hagiographic, and I didn't learn much. Really expected to like it.
The Salterton Trilogy (The Salterton Trilogy #1-3)
Thought I was going to like this more than I did. The characters were a little twee, and though I enjoyed the third book significantly more than the first two, a couple of plot developments at the end were implausible. Not his best, but saying that sets the bar quite high.
