In his sombre satire “Spewing Sparks as Big as Castles”, Abdo Khal describes the strange everyday life of a contract killer hired by a mysterious and sadistic owner of a palace, who enjoys watching the tape recordings of the tortured visitors to his home. Marginalised and powerless people are the focus of Abdo Khal’s narrative, for which he was awarded the Arabic Booker Prize.
