“Hysteria” is a collection of four to five long stories, whose main events occur in Amman. Each story can be read separately, however, one feeble thread ties them together. That thread is the “probable impossible” which Aristotle spoke about in “Poetics”. These stories can be described as fantasy stories, but they are more tied to reality; the strange and mysterious reality of a city where nothing important ever occurs.
