by Muhammad El Makhzingi
Translated by Eva Elias and Nur Elmessiri
Illustrations by Hamed Nada

A one-legged man who transforms a boring bus ride into a day at the races; an albino who simulates an eclipse of the sun; an old woman living on a rubbish heap who sees a golden moon in a discarded button; a dying girl who turns the impersonal shroud-like white linen of the ward into a paradise of flowers; names and memories: these are the characters and curiosities the reader will encounter in this collection of very short stories. El-Makhzingi manages in a few words, simply but never simplistically, to tell tales of transfiguration, revelation and redemption.
