Children of the Alley (Paperback)

£16.99
To Order. Estimated dispatch in 2-5 weeks.

Synopsis

The great-granddaddy of Egyptian fiction, this epic is possibly the most famous and definitely the most controversial novel ever to be written in Arabic. After its publication the author was stabbed in the neck by an assailant reportedly incensed by his allegory of the Abrahamic prophets and the tyrannical, distant master whose blessings they desperately seek. Despite this, the book is less an attack on religion than a lament about the cruelty of patriarchy and life in an authoritarian state. It's not exactly an easy read, but well worth the effort.
