Reviews

  • "The combination of calm unsparingness, wry humour, regret and melancholy...testifies to how much his work has richly inherited from Chekhov's."

    The Sunday Times
  • "Mahfouz's writing has a liveliness and grace that makes its philosphical concerns still seem immediate and real."

    Observer
  • "Elegant and intellectually satisfying."
