Praise

“The incredible variety of Mahfouz’s writing continues to dazzle our eyes.” —The Washington Post

“[Naguib Mahfouz] is not only a Hugo and a Dickens, but also a Galsworthy, a Mann, a Zola, and a Jules Romains.” –Edward Said, The London Review of Books

“The greatest writer in one of the most widely understood languages in the world, a storyteller of the first order in any idiom.” —Vanity Fair

“A Dickens of the Cairo cafes.” —Newsweek

“Naguib Mahfouz virtually invented the novel as an Arab form.   He excels at fusing deep emotion and soap opera.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Mahfouz’s work is freshly nuanced and hauntingly lyrical. The Nobel Prize acknowledges the universal significance of his fiction.” —Los Angeles Times Book Review
