When Mia saw Ali bin Khalaf he had spent years in London studying and returned without a degree but Mia was instantly shocked to see him. He was so tall that he touched a hurrying cloud that passed through the sky and so thin that Mia wanted to support him from the wind that carried the cloud away. He was noble, he was a saint, he was not one of those ordinary people who sweat, sleep and curse. “I swear to you, Lord, that I only want to see him again." A novel from the Sultanate of Oman that deals with the transformations of the past and the present and combines in a graceful language, the tragedies of human beings who lack nothing and the tragedies of others who lack everything.
