Graphic novel The Sandman’s adaptation is visually stunning + There’s a new burger spot in Sahel + Margaret Atwood gets retrospective in Burning Questions

📺 ON THE TUBE TONIGHT-
(all times CLT)

The highly-anticipated adaptation of graphic novel The Sandman is here, and it’s visually stunning. Author Neil Gaiman has the power to make you feel like you’ve been transported to a fantastical world that doesn’t exist anywhere else. One of his most critically-acclaimed works, The Sandman is now available to watch on Netflix, and we’re happy to report that the first season lives up to the buzz. After being imprisoned for over a century, the Sandman — the cosmic being who controls all dreams — must travel across worlds and timelines to restore order in the universe. If you’ve never read the comic book, the superb storytelling makes you want to immediately get your hands on it. The Sandman’s family provides a fascinating background story, and while the first half of the season is admittedly stronger than the second, the show is still solid thanks to an excellent cast. The Sandman is off to a great start, bringing some warmth amid the darkness that’s bound to tug at your heartstrings.

🍔EAT THIS TONIGHT-

A new burger truck has landed in the land of Sahel: Graffiti Burger. The new burger spot in New Alamein is worth checking out the next time you’re on the coast, especially because it is yet to open in Cairo. They offer a wide selection of sauces, but their unique Graffiti sauce is where it’s at. Along with our burger, we also had their signature Mac and Cheetos — pasta smothered in white sauce, cheese sauce, and Cheetos powder for a delicious, cheese flavor-induced food coma. Their beef graffiti steak sandwich is also worth ordering. Though new to Egypt, Graffiti Burger has branches in the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and Iraq.

💡 UNDER THE LAMPLIGHT-

Margaret Atwood’s Burning Questions is a superb collection of retrospective essays. The famous author writes about art, feminism, censorship, her own work, and where she gets her ideas. Atwood’s third collection of essays includes work from 2004 to 2021 — a time where she solidified her reputation as a literary legend. The Handmaid’s Tale, which she wrote in 1985, became a classic and a hit TV show, as well as an ominous sign of things to come. Atwood talks about how she got inspiration for the book, her writing method, and how she came to write its sequel The Testaments in 2019. Throughout the essays, Atwood reflects on her continuing concern with the moral and ethical questions that her fiction (especially her climate novels) raises.
