Nasrallah has said that his book is “a warning of what we could become in the future.”
The book starts at what he calls “the moment of a loss of certainty, that loss of trust in those whom you interact closely with–that neighbor, brother, father, or whoever it may be.
“The novel suggests that if we continue on our current path, we will reach a future where we would become mostly nihilistic.”
