The City Always Wins is a novel from the psychological heart of a revolution. From the communal highs of pitched night battles against the police in Cairo to the solitary lows of defeated exile in New York, Omar Robert Hamilton's debut is a unique immersion into the failed 2011 Egyptian revolution. Through the lives of its two main characters, Mariam and Khalil, Hamilton brings to life the intensity on the streets of Cairo and a moment when a generation tried to change the world. A lyrical and uncompromisingly political novel.
