StoriesPaperback - 2009
Friendly Fire , the first collection of short stories from Alaa Al Aswany, acclaimed author of Chicago and The Yacoubian Building , deftly explores the lives of contemporary Egyptians. Here are stories of generational conflict, corruption, repression, infidelity, and the dangerous clashing of western and Arab ideals, all beautifully rendered by Al Aswany, a true modern master and one of Egypt's "most exciting literary exports" ( Minneapolis Star Tribune ).
