Sample text

I was entertained in a vestibule. Mostafa and I sat together on embroidered cushions, our backs to a wall covered with tiles like those I’d seen in the café but arranged in a beautiful kaleidoscopic mosaic. Delicate net curtains draped the windows, filtering the sunlight. Mostafa’s sister served a flat, circular unleavened bread called tonist, a heap of potato cubes in olive oil, and a mixture of chopped tomato and onion in lemon juice. There were three plates, two forks, one glass of water. We ate off the same plates, drank out of the same glass.

Mostafa’s sister served a flat, circular unleavened bread called tonist, a heap of potato cubes in olive oil, and a mixture of chopped tomato and onion in lemon juice. There were three plates, two forks, one glass of water. We ate off the same plates, drank out of the same glass. Mostafa said he lived here with his parents and four sisters.

I had not seen one. They could be two kilometres away, twenty kilometres away or two hundred.
