Product description

Product Description

Diverse tales, diverse characters. Sometimes intertwining. There is Salma, facing a spiritual crisis in a country steeped in dogma; Hussam - a billionaire’s son who tries but fails to conceal his gay relationship; Mohammed, a bigamist, grasping tightly to antiquated patriarchal ideals at the expense of his love life; Mike, who adopts cultural appropriation to provide him with a stable foundation when his world collapses; and the remaining characters, one per chapter, revealing the impact of collective thought matrices on the individual and vice versa. Motorbikes and Camels is a timely book that begs the question, offered to the reader by author Al-Yagout, via one of the protagonists, Zayna: Am I who I am because of my culture?

About the Author

Nejoud Al-Yagout is a poet and essayist. This is her debut novel. Though she is Kuwaiti, Al-Yagout has lived in many countries-Italy, UK, Pakistan, China and the UAE-and considers herself, and others, souls of the universe. She is the founder of Co-Exist Kuwait, an initiative to bridge cultural, racial, ideological, social and financial divides in her country.
