by Peter Handford

In 1954, when Peter Handford was five years old, he moved to Egypt with his parents and older brother. Sixty years later, he has crafted an epic poem in thirty-three episodes ruminating on his experience and its influence in his thinking and life. Drawing from a classical education and a world traveler’s perspective, Handford takes the reader down the winding road of imagination, allowing language to unfurl in unexpected ways. Egypt, like all great odysseys, will challenge the adventurous reader to rethink passion, culture, life, and death. Pack your bags and enjoy the journey.
