Review: Slipping by Mohamed Kheir

Just as you settle in to learn more about Ahmed and his extraordinary circumstances, chapter two switches gears, and suddenly the narrator is speaking in the first person about a man named Bahr who has found a way to stand between passing streetcars at the exact spot where one won’t get run over. Just as the streetcars pass one another, the narrator sees his dead mother, who remarks, “You’ve grown, Seif.”
