This month our guest author is Mohammed Massoud Morsi. Tune in to hear him talk about his book, Twenty Two Years to Life (published by Mohammed Hussein Miheasen) with host, Meri Fatin.
Twenty Two Years to Life is the story of a young man and woman who fall in love, get married, and plan a family together. It is perhaps the most ‘normal’ story in the world – a love story. Except that in the life of this deeply devoted couple ‘normal’ is also a harsh world of permits, razor wire, scarcity and fear. The dichotomy between love and oppression echoes through this powerful narrative, taking the reader on a shifting journey between the delicate and the devastating. In Twenty Two Years to Life Morsi, writing with tremendous empathy, has distilled a political conflict into a very human, visceral story. In doing so he asks us all to consider what a person bereft of hope might eventually become capable of.
