A TALE OF TWO OMARS A Memoir of Family, Revolution, and Coming Out During the Arab Spring

by | Read by Omar Sharif Jr.

Biography & Memoir • 6.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

This is a heartrending memoir of coming into one's sexual identity-- only to encounter censure--as narrated by the author, Omar Sharif, Jr., grandson of the late actor Omar Sharif (DOCTOR ZHIVAGO). He shares the ups and downs of his once privileged life with an earnestness that will draw listeners close. Sharif explores the negative reactions of fellow Egyptians (and other homophobes worldwide) to the news of his sexuality. His unflinching descriptions of death threats, and worse, are delivered with a poignancy that evokes deep empathy. His well-paced performance might remind some of his grandfather's talents. Though the chapters are told in precise, modulated tones, Sharif shares deeply personal details that belie his formal tone. Listeners will feel like they are his confidants.
