The Clothesline Swing Paperback / softback
'The Clothesline Swing' tells the epic story of two lovers anchored to the memory of a dying Syria.
One is a Hakawati, a storyteller, keeping life in forward motion by relaying remembered fables to his dying partner.
Each night he weaves stories of his childhood in Damascus, of the cruelty he has endured for his sexuality, of leaving home, of war, of his fated meeting with his lover.
Meanwhile Death himself, in his dark cloak, shares the house with the two men, eavesdropping on their secrets as he awaits their final undoing.
