Sugar Street - MAHFOUZ, Naguib

Doubleday, 1992, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Near Fine - in Near Fine DJ.

In Palace Walk, the first volume of the English-language debut of The Cairo Trilogy, Nobel Prize-winner Naguib Mahfouz spun a mesmerizing tale of the lives of a Muslim family in Cairo during the British occupation of Egypt in the early years of this century. Palace of Desire, the provocative second volume, followed the family into the awakening world of the 1920s. The master storyteller crowns these two bestselling achievements with Sugar Street, the trilogy's climactic conclusion, in which the family ofal-Sayyid Ahmad Abd al-Jawad moves into the middle of the twentieth century, and the seeds of contemporary Egypt are sown. 308pp. Size: 8vo Medium (8" x 5½" approx.) Translated by William Maynard Hutchins and Angela Botros Samaan.
