challenging stories of life for Egyptian expatriates in the US post 9/11, set around the medical faculty at the University of Illinois. Some quite dark stuff here around identity, religion, culture, power and relationships, and a particularly dark ending, but Al Aswany is a great storyteller.

Thank you pam99! It looks good; I've heard of this author but have never read anything by him. (Love the cover, too).
Thanks also for the nice Glasgow postcard.
I never win sweepstakes so this is really special!
Edit 4/15/17: I'm partway through this book and am enjoying it (I often read several books at once) :-) . Am offering it in bookstogive's General Literature VBB. As soon as it's requested, I'll finish it...if not before. :-)
Journal Entry 5
Winchester, Massachusetts USA on Sunday, September 22, 2019
Finally finished/reread this, and I did like it. Sometimes I start too many books at once and then some get left behind. This was an interesting and sometimes amusing story of the difficulty of integrating into a new society, especially the vagaries of intercultural intimate relationships.
There were so many characters that I did go to Wikipedia to get capsule descriptions of them. It was helpful. :-) In many books I need help keeping the characters sorted.
Thanks, pam99, for sharing this book!
