Caught in a ruthless, political game where the penalty for losing is your life, what would you do?
A novel deserving of applause
It is a beautiful and interesting novel
(Mourad) has got involved and done something big.
In a region where there are not many novels in the thriller genre, Ahmed Mourad's racy and dark portrayal of pre-revolution Egypt comes as a welcome addition.
Ahmed Mourad is a distinctive, indeed a unique voice, and... Bloomsbury Qatar Foundation and Robin Moger, its stylish translator, have done us a considerable favor in making that voice available to Western audiences... Vertigo is possessed by a powerful vision of Mubarak's Egypt as a cesspit of graft, greed, and ruthless hypocrisy.
What Vertigo captures that is so essentially 2011 is the desire to rock our corrupt, and degraded world by - somehow - speaking the truth... Like the spirit of this year, this is truly brave
Caught in a ruthless, political game where the penalty for losing is your life, what would you do?
Born in 1978, Ahmed Mourad is a photographer, graphic designer and a novelist who has won several awards for his short films. Vertigo is his first novel.
A bestseller in Egypt now available across the Arab world
A compelling page-turner about contemporary life in Egypt
Vertigo has attracted critical acclaim and been reprinted several times in Arabic
Captures Egypt's revolutionary and truth-telling spirit
