Born in 1986, in Alexandria, Egypt, where he lives and works.
Mahmoud writes in English, but is inspired by his Egyptian culture, by humanity, by politics and the economic world. Psychology and philosophy are the things he loves the most, and through writing he is able to link them to everything. He writes in English to deliver a certain kind of philosophy that has only been written in Arabic by classical writers, of which very few were translated. And might also add his own touch of philosophy upon his culture too.
THE REVOLUTION OF PIRATES
Revolution of Pirates is about the Egyptian revolution. It speaks about poverty and the lowest class of people in society and about the thugs (baltageya) and how society treated them and created them. It speaks about the attack of a certain social class by thugs and the application of stereotyping them, as most Egyptians applied stereotyping to their governmental system.
It shows how they were always deprived of their own country, and though everyone lived in fear, they still owned nothing in the country through their past life. In the end, it is proven how the revolution of those thugs proved to be more successful than the “approved” Egyptian revolution.
