Read full description of the books:



When Julie Summers's car breaks down on a sleazy street in a South African city, a young Arab mechanic named Abdu comes to her aid. Their attraction to one another is fueled by different motives. Julie is in rebellion against her wealthy background and her father; Abdu, an illegal immigrant, is desperate to avoid deportation to his impoverished country. In the course of their relationship, there are unpredictable consequences, and overwhelming emotions will overturn each one's notion of the other. Set in the new South Africa and in an Arab village in the desert, The Pickup is "a masterpiece of creative empathy . . . a gripping tale of contemporary anguish and unexpected desire, and it also opens the Arab world to unusually nuanced perception" (Edward W. Said).

Reviews of the The Pickup


AARON

There are some interesting pages

RYAN

My life was divided into two halves: before and after reading the book!

MAYA

This is a very predictable author. When you get a book for free, you can read it. The intrigue is present, the unbundling is clear.

THOMAS

You need to drive a phone number to protect against robots.

LAYLA

Why should I drive my phone number?
