Sonallah Ibrahim

Egyptian activist and writer

A force of legend in Egypt.

Bidoun

The real drama of Stealth lies not in the unfolding of its plot but in its attempt to reconstruct the everyday life–sights, sounds, and smells–of pre-revolutionary Cairo. Here, Ibrahim’s achievement is Joycean. A world of vanished particulars is brought back to life.

—Robyn Creswell, Harper’s

Ibrahim has continuously re-invented the form and language he uses in his work, while probing deeply into the underlying tensions running through Egyptian society.

—Yasmine El Rashidi, The New York Review of Books
