  • Epigraph: "The problem with Arab literature has been that it forgot to tell stories and lost its way in experimentation. Too many novels that start with likes like 'I came home to find my wife having sex with a cockroach.'" Pankaj Mishra, "Where Alaa Al Aswany is Writing From," New York Times Magazine, 2008
