Youssef Ezeddin Eassa’s The Façade is a most unique work of modern literature, a touching drama in surreal painting. A small matter starts to grow on and on until it fills the whole universe! A search for the very core of the truth hidden behind a thousand masks! A hero whose past has vanished into thin air, together with his name, identity, and place-nothing remains of his yesterdays, not even a shadow-as he hits the road into this strange city without knowing where he is going.
You might find yourself in parts of this novel; however, when you finish reading The Façade, you will never be the same person again.
