Praise

“One of the best novels about Egypt ever written.”
—Adhaf Soueif

“Like The Catcher in the Rye in America, [Beer in the Snooker Club] articulated the identity crisis of a generation. . . . [The novel] presents uncanny parallels to today’s Egypt, where artists, intellectuals and youth at large are beginning to fashion a new cultural republic of sorts even as they also struggle to find their bearings.”
The New York Times

“[Ghali is] a plainspoken writer of consummate wryness, grace and humor.”
Los Angeles Times

“[The] novel reproduces a cultural state of shock with great accuracy and great humor.”
The Nation

“A triumph of genuinely comic social satire.”
The Times Literary Supplement (London)
