If you browse the book stacks at the Central Library, chances are you'll spy a "Did you miss this?" bookmark tucked in a title. Staff periodically flag a book that may have fallen off your reading radar. Who knows? You may discover a new, favorite title. Recent titles sporting the bookmark include a few multicultural novels (and one memoir) you may have missed.
An Apartment Called Freedom by Ghazi A. Algosaibi was originally published in Arabic. The story takes place in Egypt during the 1950s, a time of bitter international conflict over the Suez Canal. Within this political climate, four young men from Bahrain arrive in Cairo to complete their education.
