This novel invokes a semi-police plot to examine the nature of the relationship between men and women in eastern societies and how it castrates its members by suppressing their desires and natures under the guise of customs and traditions.

About the Publisher
In 2008, Karam Youssef established Kotob Khan Publishing to release a single book: a collection produced by participants in a creative-writing workshop. The workshop, run by poet and novelist Yasser Abdellatif, was one of several hosted by Youssef’s newly-opened Cairo bookshop. Little more than a decade later, Kotob Khan is steadily publishing numerous award-winning books annually.
