From the Publisher:
Selected and translated by the distinguished scholar Denys Johnson-Daivies, these stories have all the celebrated and distinctive characters and qualities found in Mahfouz's novels: The denizens of the dark, narrow alleyways of Cairo, who struggle to survive the poverty; melancholy ruminations on death; experiments with the supernatural; and witty excursions into Cairene middle-class life.A collection of the short stories of the Nobel Prize-winning author of Palace Walk represents thirty years of work and features tales of the citizens of Cairo, who struggle to survive amid the city's poverty. Reprint.
Annotation:
Written in-between 1962 and 1989, these short-stories from Nobel-Prize winning Egyptian author Naguib Mahfouz provide a splendid look at his range of styles, subjects, and voices. Some stories are realist glimpses into Cairo's teeming street life, others are philosophical puzzles worthy of Borges, and yet others evoke Mahfouz's complicated political and religious belief.
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.
