Product description

Review

** 'Behind the veil are the frustrations, fads, fashions and fallibilities familiar to women the world over. Miles is a loving listener, whose understanding of the Islamic world is sharpened by tea and sympathy (THE TIMES)

** 'Playing Cards mixes personal vignettes with an informed overview of Egyptian politics, and although unflinching about Cairo's problems, Miles shows his affection for this great city of every page. (FINANCIAL TIMES)

** 'An intriguing read and, as an introduction to Egyptian life, it's fascinating (DAILY MAIL)

** 'Miles should be applauded for telling their stories so compellingly, and for giving us such a detailed insight into their everyday lives. (SCOTSMAN)

Book Description
