Praise

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
