Zaman Al Gham Al Gamil (Arabic), Paperback / softback Book

Zaman Al Gham Al Gamil (Arabic) Paperback / softback


Dictatorships have never been funnier. In diary-like observations, one of Egypt's funniest young writers, Omar Taher, hilariously describes the depressing old times under Mubarak's rule.

He comments on Mubarak, his son, the ruling party, football, nepotism, politics, rituals and celebrations.

Observation upon observation..splendid sentences weave together to create a hilarious and uniquely human collection.
