Tales of Departure and Partings

Rasha Azab  |  Creative and Critical Writings  |  2019  |  Egypt
A series of stories about journeys in time with female and male protagonists who left behind their lands, their lives and their intimate particularities. For many, these were obligatory journeys, for others a result of free choice. In 2014, a new expatriation began; an Egyptian diaspora in the four corners of the world. The writer, having followed this movement for the past three years, captures the details and developments of the characters during this time.
