Naima (short story)

  • Type: Short Story
  • Length: 17 pages

Naima is a 2011 short story of author Hisham Matar. - AsNotedIn

My mother did not like the heat. I never saw her in a swimsuit or in sudden surrender closing her eyes at the sun. The arrival of spring in Cairo would set her off planning our summer getaways. Once we spent the holidays high up in the Swiss Alps, where my body stiffened at the sight of deep hollow chasms emptied out of the rocky earth. Another time she took us to Nordland, in northern Norway, where the splintered peaks of austere black mountains were reflected sharply in the unmoving waters.
Hisham Matar, Naima
