Friendly Fire, Alaa Al Aswany
1 Alaa Al Aswany Friendly Fire
Fourth Estate 233419 London 2009 9780007386008 Softcover Very Good Condition The new book from Alaa Al Aswany, author of the international bestseller 'The Yacoubian Building' and 'Chicago'.'Friendly Fire' is a novella and collection of short stories from Alaa Al Aswany, author of the bestselling 'The Yacoubian Building'. As in that novel, Al Aswany dissects modern Egyptian society and, with skill and detachment, reveals the hypocrisy, violence and abuse of power characteristic of a world in moral crisis. Here, though, the focus has shifted from the broad historical canvas to the minute stitches of pain that hold together an individual, a family, a school classroom and the relationship between a man and a woman. Can a man so alienated from his society that he regards all its members as no better than microbes wriggling under a microscope survive within it? Can cynical religiosity triumph over human decency? Can a man put the thought of a delicious dish of beans behind him long enough to mourn his father's death? Alongside these wry questions, other, less mordant perspectives also have their place: an ageing cabaret dancer bestows the blessing of a vanished world on her lover's son; a crippled boy wins subjective victory from objective disaster. 219 pages. Illustrated with colour photographs. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Fiction::Short Story Fiction; Fiction; ISBN/EAN: 9780007386008. Inventory No: 233419.

I hope you will find some that you like- In going where you have to go, and doing what you have to do, and seeing what you have to see, you dull and blunt the instrument you write with. But I would rather have it bent and dulled and know I had to put it on the grindstone and hammer it into shape and put a whetstone to it, and know that I had something to write about, than to have it bright and shining, and nothing to say, or smooth and well-oiled in the closet, but unused.' A collection of Hemingway's first forty-nine short stories, featuring a brief introduction by the author and lesser known as well as familiar tales, including 'Up in Michigan', 'Fifty Grand', and 'The Light of the World', and the Snows of Kilimanjaro, Winner Take Nothing' and Men Without Women collections 472 pages.

Anchor Books 226225 2004 1400032628 / 9781400032624 Softcover Good Condition In these brilliantly realised, linked tales, the real Venice is revealed not the iconic tourist destination the city has become, but the mysterious society that resides behind its elegant doors and shuttered windows.

And in turn, through the perspective of those who live and work in this most alluring of cities, Venetian Stories illuminates canals and palazzos, churches and gondolas, large concerns and small rituals, with an uncommon intimacy." 292 pages.
