Description - Wedding Night by Yusuf Abu Rayya

In a small town in the Nile Delta lives Houda the deaf and mute butcher's apprentice. Revealing the town's private stories through public sign language, Houda articulates the unspoken and the forbidden, to unsettle the apparent quietude of rural society. But his unrestrained desire threatens to scandalize the town and rock its codes of public behavior. This original, satiric novel is a daring critique of contemporary Egyptian reality with carnivalesque suspense and wicked black humor.
