Naguib Mahfouz was born in Cairo in 1911 and began writing when he was seventeen. His nearly forty novels and hundreds of short stories range from re-imaginings of ancient myths to subtle commentaries on contemporary Egyptian politics and culture. Of his many works, most famous is The Cairo Trilogy, consisting of Palace Walk (1956), Palace of Desire (1957), and Sugar Street (1957), which focuses on a Cairo family through three generations, from 1917 until 1952. In 1988, he was the first writer in Arabic to be awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature. He died in August 2006.Synopsis:
Written by a Nobel Prize-winner, this is a mythic tale with a modern, soap-opera-like plot, featuring the dramatic history of the al-Nagi family. It displays the weaknesses of the human character - pride, dishonesty, lust, greed - and of the greatness we are capable of when we overcome them.
