Mohamed Al Murr - Motivate Publishing
Life is always full of the unexpected and the surprising. This is the secret of many successful short stories, and Muhammad al Murr is the impresario of surprise. Every one of his stories has a sharp sting in the tail. And the comic predicaments of his characters are all the more acute because their lives are caught between the conflicting claims of modernism and tradition – nowhere more intense than in the newly oil-rich states of the Gulf
