The hidden light of objects @sultangallery #sultangallery #kuwait #q8

 

The headlines tell of war, unrest, and religious clashes.  But if you look beyond them you may see another side of life in the Middle East—adolescent love, yearnings for independence, the fragility of marriage, pain of the most quotidian kind.  Mai Al-Nakib’s short stories carefully trace overlooked moments in the lives of those who reside in this fraught region of the world—and the power of objects to hold extraordinary memories.

 

Mai Al-Nakib will read from The Hidden Light of Objects (Bloomsbury Qatar Foundation Publishing 2014) and discuss the process of writing what celebrated author A. Manette Ansay has described as “the most original first collection of short fiction I have read in years.”  Reading to be following by book signing.

Mai Al-Nakib is Associate Professor of English and Comparative Literature at Kuwait University.  Her academic work deals primarily with cultural politics in the Middle East. The Hidden Light of Objects is her first collection of short stories.  She is currently writing her first novel.
