"Tawfiq al-Hakim, in addition to being an important playwright, novelist, short-story writer, and journalist, was for decades a prominent public intellectual in Egypt. This book opens a window on that aspect of his career. Egyptian scholar Mona Radwan provocatively presents her English translation as a commentary on the current Egyptian revolution."—William Maynard Hutchins, author of Tawfiq al-Hakim: A Reader’s Guide
