9780552995801: Palace Walk: Cairo Trilogy 1

A sweeping and evocative portrait of both a family and a country struggling to move toward independence in a society that has resisted change for centuries. Set against the backdrop of Britain's occupation of Egypt immediately after World War I, Palace Walk introduces us to the Al Jawad family.

Ahmad, a middle-class shopkeeper runs his household strictly according to the Qur'an while at night he explores the pleasures of Cairo. A tyrant at home, Ahmad forces his gentle, oppressed wife and two daughters to live cloistered lives behind the house's latticed windows, while his three very different sons live in fear of his harsh will.

Recensione:

"It is Mahfouz's wonderful ability to delineate human beings from their outer appearances which gives Palace Walk its universal appeal. I shall read it again and again" ( Guardian)

"Naguib Mahfouz's wonderfully readable family saga provides a riveting and accurate portrait of Egyptian society" ( Bookseller)

"There is nothing in world literature quite like Palace Walk... This is writing worthy of a Tolstoy, a Flaubert or a Proust" ( Independent)

"A masterpiece" ( The Times)

"Naguib Mahfouz's CAIRO TRILOGY puts all contemporary writers in the shade. He is the Arab Tolstoy" (Simon Sebag Montefiore Twitter)

Descrizione del libro:

The first volume in the celebrated Cairo Trilogy.
