|I Think of You|
|In these selected stories
from her collections "Aisha" and "Sandpiper", Ahdaf
Soueif writes about love and displacement in prose that is delicately nuanced
and acutely observed. These are achingly lyrical stories, resonant and
richly woven. But they always retain an edginess as they explore areas
of tension - where women and men are ensnared by cultural and social mores
and prescribed notions of 'love', where the place you are is not the place
you want to be. She delivers her characters with infinite tenderness and
compassion as they inhabit a world of lost opportunities, unfulfilled love
and remembrance of times past.
