With subtle and eloquent prose, the complexities of these characters are revealed, opening a door into their intimate struggles with identity and place. We meet people who are tempted by the possibilities of America and others who are tempted by the desire to return home.

Some are in the throes of re-creating themselves in the new world while others seem to be embedded in the loss of their homeland. Many of these characters, although physically located in either the United States or Egypt, have lives that embrace both cultures.A Game of Chance follows the actions of a young man when he wins the immigration lottery and then must decide whether or not to change his life.

Cumin and Coriander takes us inside a womans thoughts as she tries to come to terms with the path her life has taken while working as a cook for American expatriates in Egypt. The Top enters the mind of a man whose immigration results in a loss of identity and sanity. These compelling stories pull us into the lives of many different characters and offer us striking insights into the Arab American experience.
