You'll find a total of nine short stories - some of the entirely standalone, others linked to one another. It can be very confusing, especially if you've not realised hat they are short stories. Each is beautifully constructed and most are deeply moving. Themes of geographic dislocation and alienation appear again and again with Egyptians in England and westerners in Egypt in almost equal measure. There are also several stories based around a broken marriage in which both parties are moving on but not yet divorced. In one the wife meets her not-quite-ex-husband's new girlfriend, in another she's confronted by her ex-mother in law, angry that the husband has taken off to a hotel with his new love and left her and her other son and his wife in his apartment. There's a very moving little tale of a kitten caught up in the family turmoil and a couple about ex-pats trying to find stability in Egypt.
I can't say I loved the book but it certainly reminded me how much I like Soueif's writing and has bumped her novels further up my must read list.
