    Season of Migration to the North

    In this reverse of Joseph Conrad’s ‘Heart of Darkness’, an unnamed narrator returns home to a postcolonial Sudan after being educated in Europe and meets a man called Mustafa Sa’eed. As they get acquainted, Mustapha recounts his own experiences and obsession with Western culture as well as his violent dalliances with English women but there is something disturbingly familiar about both the stories and Mustapha.
