Taxi (Bloomsbury Qatar Foundation)
'Bloomsbury Qatar's enterprising list of Arabic fiction brings a welcome new spin for this effervescent and free-spirited convoy of Egyptian stories: a huge hit on publication in 2006. In 58 short sections, Al-Khamissi introduces us to the lives, hopes, fears and (above all) the deliciously rendered voices of Cairo's cabbies. Jonathan Wright's translation catches their raucous, ribald, but also tender and melancholic, drift. Money, love, family, politics, and the sheer surreal mayhem of the daily grind under Mubarak's regime, drive this invigorating panorama of a city, and a country, stuck in an endless tailback. Prior to Egypt's revolution, Taxi would have told you more than a thousand Twitter feeds about what was coming down the road beside the Nile.' --Boyd Tonkin, The Independent'This debut collection of 58 fictional monologues by Cairo taxi drivers proves an eye-opening experience, as they discourse on matters as diverse as bootleg video games, Nile fishing, malnourished policemen, the influence of Kurosawa on Egyptian cinema; plus more predictable topics (the double lives of veiled women, censorship and repression, and of course, all those wars: six day, Yom Kippur, the Gulf, Iraq …). Dipped in and out of...this democratic cacophony transforms into a fresh and fast crash course not just in the backdrop to the Arab spring, but in all aspects of contemporary North African culture and people, from ever-present convenience foods to extreme hunger, and from economic migrants to avant-garde artists. We are all the richer for it.' --Chris Ross, The Guardian'Taxi's brilliance is that it captures the point at which cabs cease to be just a means of transportation...' --Foreign Policy magazine
