#walklikeegyptians

The Queue | Basma Abdel Aziz

Citizens #walklikeegyptians every day to queue in front of the Gate for permission for the most basic needs, the line grows longer but the gate never opens.
Great novel about the sinister nature of authoritarianism, illuminates the way that absolute authority manipulates information, mobilizes others in service to it, and fails to uphold the rights of even those faithful to it.

Geeklet I just got this book last week. I‘m waiting for a readathon to read it. It sounds fascinating. 6mo
mreads @BarbaraBB @Geeklet I've read it, it's very good. The author background is interesting shes an Egyptian journalist and psychiatrist who treated torture victims at a center in Cairo, and continued that work even after the center was raided and closed by authorities. 6mo
batsy Great blurb and pick... I've had this on my TBR for far too long! 6mo
