The City Always Wins captures the feverish intensity of the 2011 Egyptian revolution ­­- from the euphoria of mass protests, to the silence of the morgue - piercing the bloody heart of the uprising.

Review:

An astounding debut novel., Guardian

Unbearable. Unmissable. A dazzling debut. -- Naomi Klein

Vividly brings to life the failed revolution of 2011 on the streets of Cairo, in all its youthful bravery and naïve utopianism. -- J. M. Coetzee

Compelling . . . Hamilton is to be commended for his vivid and sensitive depiction of one of the most important events in recent world history., Literary Review

A picture so vivid and powerful that it gives a passionate life and reality to what might have been perceived only as abstract principles . . . It will be a long time before we read anything so skilfully brought to life. -- Philip Pullman

The City Always Wins is a stirring, clear, humane and immensely savvy novel about political innocence and fearlessness. Its fictive portrayals of the Egyptian 'revolution' of 2011 are nothing less than ground-breaking., Richard Ford

Electrifying., Observer

'Astounding... A tale of defeat and dashed dreams, told in poetic prose. The relentless pace mimics the confusion of events, the sense of the people losing control. Here the novel form shows its strengths again, revealing far more than journalism can.', Guardian

The hope, the excitement, the arrogance, the disillusionment, the renewal of hope - this novel is fast, thought-provoking, and hugely entertaining. -- Roddy Doyle

From the chaos and torment of a revolution, and the perpetual struggle with despotism, Omar Robert Hamilton has drawn a novel of great emotional and intellectual power. The City Always Wins is a rare fiction that reminds us, with its wisdom about violence and inequality, grief and loss, how politics is for many today a way to live - and die. -- Pankaj Mishra

Book Description:

This thrilling debut is the definitive novel of the Arab Spring by an author who witnessed the revolution first hand.
