A new volume of three novels-previously published separately by Anchor-by Naguib Mahfouz, winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature. Together with The Beggar, The Thief and The Dogs, and Autumn Quail""(published by Anchor in December 2000), these novels represent a comprehensive collection of Mahfouz''s artful meditations on post-revolution Egypt. Diverse in style and narrative technique, they render a nuanced and universally resonant vision of modern life in the Middle East.
Respected Sir, "a latter-day Bleak House""in Arabic" ("The New York Times"), revisits a familiar theme-vaulting ambition-in a powerful and religious metaphor. Wedding Song," " "one of Mahfouz''s most enjoyable works" ("The Chicago Tribune"), is a psychological drama, focusing on how four very different kinds of minds apprehend and reckon with the realities that surround them. "The Search" is a powerful, lurid, and compelling story of lust, greed, and murder.

Respected Sir, ?a latter-day Bleak House in Arabic? (The New York Times), revisits a familiar theme-vaulting ambition-in a powerful and religious metaphor. Wedding Song, ?one of Mahfouz's most enjoyable works? (The Chicago Tribune), is a psychological drama, focusing on how four very different kinds of minds apprehend and reckon with the realities that surround them. The Search is a powerful, lurid, and compelling story of lust, greed, and murder.
Author Bio
Naguib Mahfouz
Mahfouz is probably the best-known Arabic writer of the 20th century. He studied philosophy at Cairo University, graduating in 1934. Since then, he has been writing novels and short stories, many of them about the Cairo neighborhood he knows intimately. Mahfouz was awarded the 1988 Nobel Prize in literature, and was the first writer of Arabic descent to do so. Many of his works have been banned or are unavailable in Islamic nations of the Middle East because of his criticism of the regime in Egypt after the overthrow of King Farouk in 1952. Mahfouz died in 2006 after sustaining head injuries from a fall.
