|Subtitle||A tale of contemporary Dubai|
Hakim, a Pakistani taxi driver whizzing through the streets. Farida, a Moroccan beautician hoping for a fresh start. Saeed, a respected Emirati journalist just back from London.
Taking place across the last few days of Ramadan, this novella is a unique retelling of the virtuoso project that is Dubai.
Omar Sabbagh is a widely published prose and poetry writer, an academic, and Associate Professor of English at the American University in Dubai. He lives in Dubai, but also spends time in London, England. Minutes from the Miracle City is his second novella.
‘Vivid characters, whose interlocking fortunes and fascinating lives create a compelling story, achieving the status of proverb.’
— Fiona Sampson MBE FRSL, poet and writer
