The City Always Wins
The City Always Wins
Omar Robert Hamilton



A novel from the front line of a revolution. Deeply enmeshed in the 2011 uprising in Tahrir Square, Mariam and Khalil move through Cairo's surging streets and roiling political underground. From the communal highs of night battles against the police to the solitary lows of post-revolutionary exile, Omar Robert Hamilton’s bold debut cuts to the psychological heart of one the key chapters in the twenty-first century.

"Crossing borders and generations, Hamilton brings us into the movement’s effervescent hope and its crushing heartbreak, probing timeless questions about what the living owe to the dead. Unbearable. Unmissable. A dazzling debut."
―Naomi Klein, author of The Shock Doctrine and This Changes Everything

"Omar Hamilton brings vividly to life the failed revolution of 2011 on the streets of Cairo, in all its youthful bravery and naive utopianism.”
―J. M. Coetzee
