Cecily is a young person trying to find the backdoor into adulthood. They’re white, anglophone, and were raised on the Arabian Peninsula. He’s preoccupied with words, and the body, and with other people, and with themself. When it’s hot in Abu Dhabi, all the city cats lay stretched out along the crack at the bottom of the apartment building doors to steal the air conditioning.
