Naser is a young African immigrant who works the night shift at Jasim's café in downtown Jeddah. The long, hot summer has arrived and his friends have left the city. Naser spends his afternoons sitting beneath the palm tree outside his flat, dreaming of Egyptian actresses, and keeping out of the way of the religious police now that he no longer attends mosque. Then, one afternoon, a woman drops a piece of torn paper at his feet. It is a declaration of love. She calls herself 'Fiore' and tells him that that the next time she passes she will be wearing a pair of pink shoes so that he can distinguish her from the other women dressed in their identical black Iabayas/I. Fiore's pink shoes lead Naser into a summer aching with erotic tension yet filled with danger. Under the strict Wahhibism of Saudi state rule relationships between unmarried men and women are illegal ' can Naser and Fiore trust one another to keep their secret?. This 2009 Vintage Paperback is in good condition.
