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.

9789774243035 Naguib Mahfouz 36251, The Harafish
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.

MAHFOUZ, Naguib (1911-2006)
[the Cairo Trilogy (Al-Thulathiyya), Comprising] Palace Walk, Palace of Desire, [and] Sugar Street [Inscribed by the Translator]
Cairo, The American University in Cairo Press [through 1992], 1989. First Impression. `. True First English-language Editions of Mahfouz's masterpiece, one of the greatest works in Arab literature, complete in three volumes, each inscribed by the lead translator (Hutchins). Translated by William Maynard Hutchins, Olive E. Kenny, and Lorne M. Kenny. Royal 8vo (233 x 151mm): [8],498,[4]; [6],422,[4]; [8],308,[4]pp. Attractively and uniformly bound in quarter cloth (maroon, pale green, and French blue, respectively) over paper-covered boards (mid-brown, deep beige, and pink), spines stamped in gold; saffron, speckled pale green, and pinkish-red end papers (each matching its dust-jacket border); photo-illustrated dust jackets. Briefly inscribed on each half-title page by Hutchins. Presumed first printings, dated 1989, 1991, and 1992 on copyright pages, with no additional printings listed,and with publisher's code BG. Truly a spectacular set, all volumes very tight, square, and giving every evidence of being unread. One end paper very slightly browned at margins, trace of lightening to upper edge of one board; jackets crisp, fresh, and bright (one back panel creased top and bottom, short closed tear to front panel of another). Extremely collectible. Originally published, in Egyptian, as Bayn al-Qasrayn (1956), Qasr al-Shawq (1957), and al-Sukkariyya (1957). Mahfouz was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1988, the only Arab to be so honored. The Cairo Trilogy "chronicles the upheaval and change during the years 1917 to 1944 through the microscopic lens of a single family coming face to face with political events. Each of the three novels that comprise the trilogy was named after a street in Mahfouz' home city: Palace Walk, Palace of Desire, and Sugar Street, their titles illustrative of the composition of the Jamaliyya quarter of Cairo where Mahfouz spent his childhood and where cramped, squalid blocks of flats neighboured spacious mansions. the most pertinent issue from the first pages of Palace Walk to the very last scene of Sugar Street is how Egypt arrives at and copes with questions of modernity and self-identity as it struggles to find a place in the world of modern nation-states . (Literary Encyclopedia) The Palestinian-American literary critic Edward Said valorized Mahfouz as "not only a Hugo and a Dickens, but also a Galsworthy, a Mann, a Zola, and a Jules Romains. " He was speaking not just to the author's seismic impact but to the sheer range of techniques he introduced into the Arab novel. N. B.
