“Abu Jurgen, the German Ambassador and I”, a grotesque episodic novel - with magical powers* - by Assaf Alassaf, and “The invention of German”, a surreal and funny collection of short stories by Rasha Abbas
*As the online magazine alaraby.co.uk once stated, Abu Jurgen „was able to do what embassies and human traffickers failed at doing“.
