AUD English Professor Dr. Sabbagh Releases Dubai Novella

Omar Sabbagh’s "Minutes from the Miracle City" offers a window into contemporary Dubai.

Mar 05, 2019

‘Omar Sabbagh’s Minutes from the Miracle City (Fairlight Books, July 2019) is a taut, kaleidoscopic tale offering a window onto the cosmopolitan, multifarious and virtuoso project that is contemporary Dubai. Dr. Sabbagh peoples this forthcoming tale with a wide array, ethnic and socio-economic alike, of characters, whose interlocking fortunes make up the weave of the narrative. At the heart of this tale is a love story; a love story which acts as a symbol for the love stories all the characters have with Dubai, here to make their fortunes or, if not quite that, their lives a little easier. Taking place on the last few days of Ramadan, this story will be essential reading for anyone who wants to understand the phenomenon of contemporary Dubai, but in a concrete and thrilling way.’

We congratulate Dr. Sabbagh on the publishing of his latest work and are proud to have his talent be part of the AUD community.
