Tales rich in maturity that flow from a child's unrestrained mind

Mamlakah min ‘Asseer Al Tofaah (Kingdom of Apple Juice) by Ahmed El-Fakharany, Cairo: Dar Nahdet Masr, 2011. pp.143

This collection of stories, described by the writer as "tales," may deceive the reader in the first instance as tales told by a little child, but, despite that, they are full of pain and sadness.

The collection doesn’t reveal itself directly, but rather creeps up on the reader from the magical uncontrolled world of a child's imagination.
