These are short stories written during various visits to Dubai and Ras Al Khaimah. Many of them were inspired by real experiences during meetings with interesting people and during long solitary walks in both cities and their surrounding countryside. Mikdadi tries to make sense of a hilariously disordered world.
These stories are memorable and could not help but move readers, as Maeve Binchy said.
