A Hologram for the King Chapter 31

By Dave Eggers

Chapter 31

  • Alan does better in his work life after surgery. He even gets a few calls from Yousef assuring him that the threat from the jealous husband is decreasing.
  • He returns to the tent one afternoon to find Rachel draped across Brad—mildly problematic because Brad is married—but Alan refuses to get involved.
  • Alan emails Dr. Hakem to thank her. They flirt with each other.
  • Dr. H eventually asks Alan out to her brother's house on the sea. Alan's pretty worked up about this, so he walks around KAEC.
  • When he returns to the tent, Rachel and Brad are snogging pretty hard. Cayley is at work on her laptop and ignoring them.
  • Alan decides to continue to ignore their behavior, since they've decided to ignore him anyway.
