Literary Giants: The Thief and the Dogs

After four years in prison, the skilled young thief Said Mahran emerges bent on revenge in a changed world. His wife has married a trusted friend; his native Egypt has undergone a revolution; and his mentor, who encouraged his Robin Hood-style crimes, has abandoned him. As Said's wild attempts to achieve his idea of justice badly misfire, he becomes a hunted man so driven by hatred that he can only recognize too late his last chance at redemption. This event is part of The Big Read.
