Description


What's left to sell when poverty took it all? Your body, whole or by bits...


“As she was unwrapping a brand new pair of Jimmy Choos, while all he had unwrapped this last two to three years were the pills he couldn't live without anymore, in between dialysis as he always was, she suddenly noticed her husband was troubled. — What's wrong with you? — I've met him, he breathed. He's 29 and has a wife called Haniya. He's a pauper. He doesn't read nor write and barely has enough to survive. He didn't even know what a kidney was.”



Best-seller author Franck Thilliez offers a short story which is just as documented as his well-known thrillers. It gets its facts from the harsh iniquities of our world where cash is king. Ska is very proud to have Franck Thilliez in its catalogue.

He said there was an ad in the paper I could be interested in. He read it to me, told me about the money. He said he could put me in touch with you thanks to the computers. That’s how it went down. I was told to come here, so I came here. I’m strong, I’m used to running, to carry heavy stuff. I’m in good shape, really. The two men were talking at the end of a narrow alley, close to the Coptic cemetery. It was late and the traffic had died down in Cairo’s main roads. — If you want us to do business together, you’re gonna have to be straight with me, alright? Samâane said. — Well, I am. — How many of you live there, at your place? Moussa explained how he lived with his two brothers and his wife, Haniya, on the roof of a building.
