Shahd Alshammari (editor)

This is a collection of short stories and narratives written by English literature students at the Gulf University of Science and Technology. The narratives range from the gothic to the surreal and to satire. Themes explored include identity, love, loss, and issues of belonging. At times experimental, these narratives challenge our understanding of Kuwaiti Anglophone writing. The book celebrates the youth’s creativity and offers a platform for sharing these texts with the world.
