Fascinating fictional look at 1920s Cairo through the lens of a Nobel laureate. I really, really enjoyed these three books and the characters were particularly memorable. I read that Mafouz wrote this as one large book and only later split them into three for the publishing house - I can definitely see that. Don't try and read the books out of order; they won't make sense.
