A Sudanese writer begins to suspect that one of his most idiosyncratic characters from a recent novel resembles--in an uncanny, terrifying way--a real person he has never met. Since he condemned this character to an untimely death in the novel, should he attempt to save this real man from a similar fate?
Set in both sides of Khartoum--the bustling capital city and the neglected, poverty-stricken underbelly--this is a novel of unreliable narrators, of insane asylums, and of the dubious relationship between imagination and reality.
