RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 54993082 LA English T1 Chaos of the senses A1 Mosteghanemi, Ahlem,, Sreih, Baria Ahmar., PB American University in Cairo Press PP Cairo; New York YR 2004 SN 9774246705 9789774246708 AB "Ahlam Mosteghanemi's second novel picks up where Memory in the Flesh left off, with the story of love set in the battered and bruised Algeria of the 1990's. Mosteghanemi takes her readers through the streets of suspicion and suspense, and the ups and downs of a forbidden love affair, through a story within a story, as a writer stuck in a loveless marriage to an important military man inadvertently writes what eventually comes true." "She begins - after a period of not writing - by penning the narrative of a mysterious man who courts the object of his desire through deceptive words, then she helplessly follows the path of her fictitious character only to find that the mystery man exists and it is he who had led her to his door and into his life. One twist leads to the next, as the question remains of which man the writer was destined to meet and fall in love with - the mysterious artist or the doomed journalist."--Jacket.
