Palace Walk

by Naguib Mahfouz

PALACE WALK is the first volume of the celebrated 'Cairo Trilogy', the story of 20th century Egypt told through the eyes of the Al Jawad family. A sweeping family saga crossing three generations, the trilogy is set in the old quarter of Cairo, and spans the decades from the early part of the century to Nasser's historic overthrowal of the old regime in 1952. Brimming over with warmth, humour and vivid description, PALACE WALK offer a fascinating insight into this exotic, timeless city and into the mores of a culture so different from our own.
