The characters of very different social backgrounds demonstrate a frightening nature hidden deep inside them – uncurbed ambitions and pathological drive which push them to their doom. Here everyone is alone only confronted by the sand-colour Death that has no shadow. In fact it is their self-reflection they dread so much but are driven to in their desperation. Here everyone carries the burden of their past sins, just like a caravan lost among the endless sand dunes.
THE DESERT OF DEAD SAND was shortlisted in literary prize SABA for the best novel of the year 2015.
