Closed Gate

Closed Gate

by Sayed Gouda

 

Sayed Goudas Closed Gate juxtaposes the Tiananmen Square Massacre in Beijing with the sufferings of Palestine. But while the novels narrative builds slowly and irreversibly towards its climactic conclusion in June 1989, the sufferings of Gaza are experienced in snatches, dreams, and traumatic flashes of sudden prose, as if to suggest that here is a drama that is not concluded as it surely isnt.

Once Upon a Time in Cairo

Once Upon a Time in Cairo
by Sayed Gouda
 

Cairo, 1948. Two families lay claim to a plot of land on which they share a house. The ruthless master of El-Wehda Street takes the side of Musa against El-Arabi, and an honest man dies defending his shop. Three generations live through conflict, celebration, betrayal, murder and, finally, love 

Amina cannot blind her sons to the beauty of Delilahs daughters, but do they have the right to love if justice does not prevail? Can Safwat rise above 'an eye for an eye'? Will he choose peace -- or seek a just revenge?
