Over the Bridge by Mohamed El-Bisatie

Book Description

With its overlapping narratives, "Over the Bridge" is a subtle critique of governmental ineptness, economic and social injustice, and individual moral failings. In Mohamed El-Bisatie's hands, the human drive to create, and to control one's own and others' destinies, is invariably turned on its head, while attempts to do good frequently end up causing harm instead.
