Greg Mosse was in Dubai for the Emirates Airlines Festival of Literature, and a couple of his colleagues, novelists, had recently gone into the Dubai men’s and women’s prisons as creative writing tutors. Out of that they created a book of short stories, Tomorrow I Will Fly, written by the offenders. One of the stories struck Greg very deeply, which made him consider the idea of guilt, and whether, once the punishment is complete, can the offender leave behind their own sense of guilt, or will they always carry it with them.
