Six strangers. Six letters. A chain of dark confessions, none of which
reaches the intended recipient. Over the course of one hundred profound and
disturbing pages, The Night Post tells the story of characters living on
the periphery, battling with devastating poverty, fighting their own
demons. Set in an unnamed country torn apart by war, the six characters at
the heart of this tale are compelled to share their most personal secrets.
This outstanding novella addresses some of the defining issues of our age:
migration, conflict and exploitation. From one of today's most talented
Arabic writers, The Night Post forces the reader to ask whether, in an
oppressively connected world, we are drifting ever further apart.--
