《沙漠里的故事 》总共收录了10篇以沙地阿拉伯为背景的写实小说。

尤今曾经旅居沙特阿拉伯一年余,在这个黄沙莽莽的大漠,她邂逅了许多来自世界各地的异乡人,他们全都是怀着改善生活的美梦来此打拼的。在和这些异乡人交往时,她深切地感觉,他们就像是一部部厚厚的书,每一部书的内容都是绝无仅有的、丰富的、深邃的、动人的。在阅读的过程中,她笑、她哭;而在笑声泪影中,他们祸福与共地成了她生命里的一个个烙印。

Desert Stories is a collection of 10 non-fictional prose pieces set in Saudi Arabia. Beguiling, plaintive, and profoundly insightful, You Jin’s fiction is a vivid evocation of Saudi society.
