The Gatekeeper is one of the standout stories comes toward the end of the collection. True to the collection’s title, each piece exhibits a strong, clearly defined voice, delivered in a range of forms. The stories we tell ourselves are not formed in a vacuum, but they are also not set in stone; these writers illustrate that stories are meant to be interrogated, and truths are meant to be told.
Editorial View Of The Gatekeeper
Dez sits in a compound on the coast of Algeria. His back is to the door of a great house and his eyes are on the gate to the manor’s walled grounds.He has recently ushered fourteen mates through that gate into the compound, and then through the door into the house.What they do inside is not his concern. The door and the gate are.The compound is outside Oran and consists of the massive old house, four stories tall, with white sandstone walls and the ubiquitous sooty, dusty red terra-cotta roof of that coastal region of Algeria. The compound is surrounded by a wall, six meters high, crenellated in the old Moorish and French styles. The walkways atop the wall are lined with twelve earthen pots, all hand-fired a deep cinnamon and filled with flowering bougainvillea. The pots—each the size of a Smart car—were placed up there a decade ago so that riflemen could hide and shoot down and inward at marauders who’d breached the gate.
The grounds are a lovely mosaic of green grass laced with winding pathways of crushed white seashells. In the rear of the compound is a garage large enough for the owner’s fleet of eleven vintage automobiles. Outside the garage, the grounds are spacious enough to park twenty sedans, which the owner, Djamel M’Bolhi, often does when hosting like-minded criminals, or Eurotrash narcotics enthusiasts, or those who wish to monetize terrorism.Dez and his mates arrived in Oran individually or in groups of two, spaced out over three days and two nights. They came by boat and train and jitney. Fourteen men, one woman. Some of them had worked together before; others were strangers. They come from eleven different countries, speaking about a dozen languages. But all of them understand English, so that’s their language for this jobDez has his eyes on the gate to the grounds and the door to the house. The gate into the grounds and the door to the house are both painted red. While they belong to Djamel M’Bolhi, right now Dez owns them both. He is the gatekeeper.
