about this book

Winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1988, Naguib Mahfouz is one of the foremost writers in modern Arabic literature. His books have had great success in this country, particularly The Cairo Trilogy. The Harafish is the story of the prominent al-Nagi family—a family that moves, over many generations, from the height of power and glory to the depths of decadence and decay—and whose descendents nearly ruin its legendary name.
