It's my pleasure to feature my friend and fellow blogger, Ali M on ExpatandtheCity. I'm sure you’ve heard the buzz surrounding the launch of his first novel. I would like to show my support and encourage everyone in the expat community to check out his delicious new book.
"A Column named The World We Live In", a novel by young Kuwaiti writer Ali M., is now available at the following bookstores here in Kuwait:
Virgin Megastore (Marina Mall)
Careffour (The Avenues)
Geant (360 Mall)
The Sultan Center (Souq Sharq, Salmiya, and Salwa branches)
The vignettes of this novel revolve around six characters, each living in different places around the world at different times. The stories take place from the beginning of the third millennium to the not-so-distant future of 2014. From Argentina to Canada and from New York to South Africa to the Middle East, the narratives present a roller coaster ride around the globe with characters of different ages, backgrounds, race and religion as the author blends several genres and writing techniques to reflect on life, human nature and the world we live in.
