"An enormously entertaining read…. Rodenbeck’s lively and affectionate portrait…veers easily between past and present, personal and historical." –The Washington Post Book World

"A book to read: one that will easily fit in your carry-on bag, and should greatly enhance any vacation or business trip to Cairo, short or long." –The New York Times Book Review

"Rodenbeck unwinds Cairo’s tale with witty, clear-eyed affection. He has a lightness of touch and erudition, a skill with anecdote, that recreates Egypt–for all Egypt’s roads lead to Cairo–in all its contradictoriness." –The Economist
