Reviews

  • His masterpiece

    The Sunday Times
  • Naguib Mahfouz's CAIRO TRILOGY puts all contemporary writers in the shade. He is the Arab Tolstoy.

    Simon Sebag Montefiore, Twitter
  • Proust, Tolstoy and Balzac are the names most frequently flung around in company with that of Mahfouz...I thought of Galsworthy, reading Sugar Street

    Spectator
  • Mahfouz's scope is vast and his concerns are not only still evident today, but crucial

    The Scotsman
  • Sugar Street is a marvellous novel, with many messages, open and concealed, for those who will be instructed

    The Times Literary Supplement
