Winner of the King Fahd Center for Middle East and Islamic Studies Translation of Arabic Literature Award 2009

"Bassiouney’s bighearted fourth novel (the first to be translated into English) portrays the agonies of love and identity."—Publishers Weekly

"Offers an intimate look at Egypt in the 1980s and the changes that a dynamic decade were bringing to its life and culture."—Booklist

"Exuberant, picaresque, and poignant. . . . Bassiouney’s gift is in the illuminating detail, in depicting how Egyptians see their culture and the limitations it imposes—inevitably yielding to the thrust of westernization."—Foreword Reviews
