Summary
Celestial Bodies is set in the village of al-Awafi in Oman, where we encounter three sisters: Mayya, who marries Abdallah after a heartbreak; Asma, who marries from a sense of duty; and Khawla who rejects all offers while waiting for her beloved, who has emigrated to Canada. These three women and their families witness Oman evolve from a traditional, slave-owning society slowly redefining itself after the colonial era, to the crossroads of its complex present.'Complex and tangled... the glimpses into a culture relatively little known in the west are fascinating.' - The Guardian'A book to win over the head and the heart in equal measure, worth lingering over' - Bettany Hughes, Man Booker International Judge'A beautifully achieved account of lives pulling at the edges of change' - The Irish Times'Blends the rhythms of daily life with magic and legend.' - Muhammad Barrada'Delivers the reader immediately into the world of the marginal, forgotten, most subaltern sectors of society.' - Ibrahim al-Hajari
