Naguib Mahfouz 36251
The Dream
American Univ in Cairo Press, 2004. Pp: 125. In this collection of his newest and shortest short stories, the Egyptian Nobel literature laureate has reduced the fictional form to its most essential level, while retaining his justifiably famous mastery of the storytelling art. A man finds that all the streets in his neighborhood have turned into a circus - but his joy at the sight changes to anger when he discovers he cannot escape it anywhere, even in his own home. A group of lifelong friends meet to trade jokes in a familiar alley - only to face asudden, deadly flood that echoes the revenge taken by an ancient Egyptian queen upon the men who murdered her husband. A girl from the dreamer's childhood flies with him from his native lane on a cart drawn by a winged horse, to become a star in the firmament above the Great Pyramid. Such is the stuff of Naguib Mahfouz's The Dreams - his first major work since a knife attack by a religious fanatic in 1994 left him unable to write for several years. First serialized in a Cairo magazine, The Dreams are a unique and haunting mixture of the deceptively quotidian, the seductively lyrical, and the savagely nightmarish - the richly condensed sum of more than nine decades of artistic genius and everyday experience. - Dust jacket.

9780385485555 Naguib Mahfouz 36251, Echoes of an Autobiography
Naguib Mahfouz 36251
Echoes of an Autobiography
Doubleday, 1997. Hardcover. Pp: 118. From the Foreword by Nadine Gordimer: "These pieces are meditations which echo that which was, has been, and is the writer Mahfouz. They are-in the words of the title of one of the prose pieces-'The Dialogue of the Late Afternoon' of his life. I don't believe any autobiography, with its inevitable implication of self-presentation, could have matched what we have here." With more than 500,000 copies of his books in print, Naguib Mahfouz has established a following of readers for whom "Echoes of an Autobiography" provides a unique opportunity to catch an intimate glimpse into the life and mind of this magnificent storyteller. Here, in his first work of nonfiction ever to be published in the United States, Mahfouz considers the myriad perplexities of existence, including preoccupations with old age, death, and life's transitory nature. A surprising and delightful departure from his bestselling and much-loved fiction, this unusual and thoughtful book is breathtaking evidence of the fact that Naguib Mahfouz is not only a "storyteller of the first order" ("Vanity Fair"), but also a profound thinker of the first order. "From the Trade Paperback edition.". ISBN: 9780385485555. Cond./Kwaliteit: Goed.

Naguib Mahfouz 36251
The Harafish
Amercain University in Cairo Prees, 1994. Hardcover. Pp: 416. In "The Harafish" Naguib Mahfouz returns to the style of sweeping narrative at which he has proven himself a master. He chronicles the dramatic history of the Nagi family-a family that descends, over many generations, from the heights of power and prestige to the depths of decadence and decay. The epic story begins with the tale of Ashur al-Nagi, a man who grows from humble roots to become a great leader and a legend among his people. The name of Ashur epitomizes a time of glory for the harafish, or the common people, when they were led by one of their own. Generation after generation, however, Ashur's descendants stray further from his legendary example. They lose touch with their origins as they amass and then lose large fortunes, marry prostitutes when they marry at all, and develop rivalries that end in death. Finally, a Nagi appears who restores the family name to its former distinction. The Harafish is a mythic tale, a compelling portrait of human weaknesses-pride, dishonesty, lust, and greed-and of the greatness of which we are capable when we overcome them. ISBN: 9789774243035.
