Celestial Bodies description

A poetic novel of great beauty and intensity, Jokha Alharthi’s Celestial Bodies is the first novel written in Arabic to win the International Booker Prize. Through the lives of interconnected families across three generations, it reveals the radical changes that have transformed Oman over the last century, from a traditional slave-owning country to a complex contemporary society. Told from alternating first and third perspectives, this rich family saga combines deep cultural insight with clever construction.
