Chicago - Alaa Al-Aswany


Egyptian and American lives collide on a college campus in post-9/11 Chicago, and crises of identity is portrayed in the extraordinary second novel from the famous author of "The Yacoubian Building", Alaa Al Aswany.

This is a story of ambition, love, friendship, hatred with a rich and unforgettable cast of American and Arab characters who are achingly human in their desires and needs. Beautifully rendered, this is an illuminating portrait of America, a complex, often contradictory land in which triumph and failure, opportunity and oppression, small dramas and big dreams coexist. Chicago is a powerfully engrossing novel of culture and individuality from one of the most original voices in contemporary world literature.

Dimensions: 21cm, paperback, 278 pages, Bosnian.
