Considered by many to be Mahfouz's best novel, "Midaq Alley" centers around the residents of one of the hustling, teeming back alleys of Cairo. No other novel so vividly evokes the sights and sounds of the city. The universality and timelessness of this book cannot be denied.

"Naguib Mahfouz virtually invented the novel as an Arab form.He excels at fusing deep emotion and soap opera." The New York Times Book Review
"Mahfouz's work is freshly nuanced and hauntingly lyrical.The Nobel Prize acknowledges the universal significance of his fiction." Los Angeles Times Book Review"

About the Author:

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.
