Moon Sinking (Ofol al-Qamar)



This is a story about the last days of the lives of seven people before the collision of the Moon into the Earth. It is about the daydreams of a young man, the silence of a lonely widow, the ramblings of a village idiot, the anxiety of a boy with a toothache, the cravings for freedom of a prisoner on a hunger strike, the fantasies of a young woman in love and the plans for a better future of an couple about to immigrate.
