Omar Imady answers questions about When Her Hand Moves. Perfect for book club discussions! What was your main inspiration for the novels? It’s really hard to think in terms of a inspiration. Usually, my writing reflects a complex mixture of various forms of inspiration. But if I had to choose one specific theme which cuts through both novellas it would have to be the experience of feeling evicted from my own country as a result of the tragic events Syria has undergone since 2011
When Her Hand Moves is a lyrical symphony of three captivating movements: The Passion of Sidra, The Seduction of Jude and The Rage of Fatima. Literary fiction that combines the sensual and the sacred, the intellectual and the imaginary, the divine and the dangerous. Three stories come together with the light touch of magical realism, to examine, interrogate, and challenge our understanding of universal truths and spirituality.
