Both Abdelaziz Baraka Sakin’s The Jungo Stakes of the Earth and Huda Hamed’s The Ethiopian Maid attempt to find the balance between strength and weakness on one hand and the bitter reality of deferred dreams on the other. Both novels follow marginalised people whose stories have been ignored, sometimes unintentionally and sometimes on purpose. While opening a window to show the true deprivation people can experience at the mercy of both nature and their employers, how do the authors delve beyond merely observing their psychological and social transformations to express their humanity?
