Those who know already the wit and wisdom of Khalid Kishtainy and who have read his syndicated newspaper columns for many years will be delighted by this collection of short stories; some sad, some erotic, but all imbued with sympathy for the dilemmas of humanity. For readers unaware of Kishtainy's international reputation for skewering the great and the good with his sly, capricious humor, a delightful discovery awaits you.
Khalid Kishtainy was born in Baghdad and came to England after graduating from the Faculty of Law at Baghdad University and the Academy of Fine Arts. He has written many books, but is best known for his syndicated newspaper column, which he has written for over 20 years in al-Sharq al-Awsat, enjoyed throughout the Arab World and Europe for its wry cynicism and sharp analysis.
