Praise for Naguib Mahfouz:

“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

“The incredible variety of Naguib Mahfouz’s writings continue to dazzle our eyes.” —The Washington Post

“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
