In Creating Rachel, Mohammed goes to any and all lengths, racking up thousands of pounds of credit card debt to finance the increasingly desperate moves he believes will tip Rachel's heart in his favour. All the while wrestling with his jealousy, confusion, pain, longing and inner awakening. Here, in his first novel, Mustafa Alrawi paints a perfect picture of the over-privileged, twenty-something Arab living in London at the turn of the twenty-first century - a man who refuses to face the truth that his carefully constructed fantasy world is dying amid the inevitable changes that are about to happen post-9-11.
