The Nile is a Road

The Nile is a Road, by Emily Richardson


The Nile is a Road

In this raw and alluring story set in modern-day Cairo, Jade and her best friend Sarah travel to the ancient city with no expectations and no plans beyond staying a week and seeing the pyramids.

But Cairo has other ideas in store for them. Confronted with the gritty, chaotic streets, the desert and the bustling cafés, where everyone is a friend and nothing is as it seems on the surface, Jade finds herself sucked into the mayhem of a situation spinning out of control as a man as mystifying as Cairo itself comes between the two friends. Coming face-to-face with unimaginable beauty and the simmering yearnings of the people around her, Jade soon sees that this is a place where life is often encountered in the smallest details. While her affections swing wildly between the people and the city, ultimately she finds that leaving Cairo is not nearly the hardest thing she will have to do.

Emily Richardson was born in Sydney, Australia, where she spent the first part of her childhood. The latter part was spent in a more bucolic setting, after her parents tired of the rat race of city life and moved the family to a farm a few hours west of Sydney.

A few years later, with the blur of school and journalism college behind her, Emily set off to see what was going on across the other side of the world, living and working for several years in London and Los Angeles and travelling through an assortment of countries.

Along the way she stumbled almost inadvertently upon Cairo, where life tasted and felt somehow different. The people, the language, the music and the culture artfully entrapped her, so she stayed to work and study Arabic. She subsequently met her Egyptian husband and they now have two little boys.

They currently live primarily on the east coast of Australia and quite often in Cairo.
