'Impossible to put down while you're reading, and impossible to forget about when you've finished' GlamourAfter a gruelling job interview where she was interrogated about everything from her political leanings to her family background, Sabrina Mahfouz realised that one unspoken question had pervaded her entire life: as a woman of Middle Eastern heritage, could she really be trusted?Years later, Sabrina found herself confronting this question and how it was specifically informed by the British Empire's historical dominance in the Middle East. Taking us on a journey of the Middle-Eastern coastlines and waterways that were so vital to the Empire's hold, and combining memoir, history, politics, myth and poetry, These Bodies of Water is a tapestry of writing that tells the unacknowledged story of Britain's relationship with the Middle East in the most revealing terms. 'A writer of staggering conviction, ingenuity and integrity' Kae Tempest'Brilliant and profound' Nikesh Shukla'A bold, brave look at the ways imperialism affects us all' Riz Ahmed
