Product Details

Praise

“A masterful kaleidoscope of emotions, ideas, and perspective. Mahfouz has captured a family and its homeland at one gloriously varied moment in a cycle.” —Newsday

“Mahfouz’s characters blaze with intensity, his Egypt pulsates with unresolved tension.” —The Atlanta Constitution

“A resonant tour de force, a superbly written novel. One of the most enjoyable books of recent memory.” —St. Louis Post-Dispatch
 
“Mahfouz presents us with a different concept of the world and makes it real. His genius is not just that he shows us Egyptian colonial society in all its complexity; it is that he makes us look through the vision of his vivid characters and see people and ideas that no longer seem so alien.” —Philadelphia Inquirer
