“The Cradle” by Mohammed Hamed, a Saudi author, novelist, and translator, born on March 5, 1983, in Al Ghuraybah village in southern Saudi Arabia, is a profound and captivating novel published in 2020 by Tashkeel Publishing and Distribution. This narrative transcends the ordinary, transporting readers into realms of profound introspection and the metaphysical.

The novel eloquently delves into the human condition, exploring the paradox of being close yet unreachable, living through myriad experiences without ever truly possessing a tangible reality. It encapsulates the essence of being on the edge – a place where all possibilities are viable, and certainties are non-existent. This aspect of the world is a full embodiment of the edge, a vast expanse teetering between expectation and downfall, a space threatening to consume everything. In the world’s map, it is akin to the Bermuda Triangle, while in every individual’s memory, it forms a rectangle of oblivion entered each time one closes their eyes and succumbs to sleep.

Beautiful and profound, “The Cradle” dialogues with the extraordinary, engaging with the intricacies beyond the visible and tangible. Through this novel, Mohammed Hamed, with his distinct narrative voice and insightful perspective, invites readers to traverse horizons and speak to the peculiarities of the ‘beyond’. The novel stands as a testament to Hamed’s literary prowess and his ability to weave complex themes into compelling narratives.

“The Cradle” is not just a story but an immersive experience that challenges perceptions and explores the depths of human consciousness and the unseen boundaries of our existence. As a piece of literature, it is a significant contribution to the world of Saudi literature, offering a unique exploration of the metaphysical aspects of life and the unseen edges of the human experience.
