Format: Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
This book is a collection of 17 short stories by Alaa Al Aswany, translated by Humphrey Davies. Al Aswany is an Egyptian dentist and author, and is something of a rarity in the Arab world, in that he is able to live from his writing.

This collection is a fantastic window on modern Arab fiction, and is interesting because for many years Egypt's largest publisher refused to touch some of the stories, because of their anti-govermental, anti-Egyptian sentiment.
