As good as the first part
Every bit as good as the first volume in the trilogy. Mahfouz, like all great novelists, can make you care for characters that are, when viewed objectively, quite unsympathetic.
A classic. Full of pathos and atmosphere. Brilliant characterisations and a worthy follow up to the first book. ... ..

A Wonderful collection of very short stories
This collection of stories was discovered posthumously. I was left wondering if this wonderful author would have wanted these stories to be published. I did enjoy this book of very short stories and I admire the man. His Nobel peace prize acceptance speech(printed at the end of this book) is wonderful,powerful and moving and just as relevant today. This stories are set in these medieval like narrow Egypt streets. Some tales are cautionary about hierarchy, justice, honesty, religion, gender inequality. I have not read much Arabic literature. I would defiantly like to read more of this writer’s work.
Beautiful short stories.
My favourite author and this was a treat being published so long after his death. Short stories that brought a the characters alive. It did not disappoint.
Brilliant late Mahfouz
A set of brief (a few pages each) vignettes which yield an incomparable vision of one quarter of pre-Revolutionary Cairo.

I like Mahfouz!
Mahfouz always teaches me something. I began reading his works because I wanted to find out more about life in Egypt during the 20th century under Islamic regimes. In this point in history I think the West needs to do more of this sort of thing. I remember King Farouk, Nasser, and the Egyptian history since then so Mahfouz was pretty immediate--the things Mahfouz wrote about. Not only are his books enlightening, Mahfouz himself was an interesting and erudite man, member of the Wafd party, victim of a violent attack by opposition factions. He lived in a turbulent historical period. (Egypt still is, heartbreakingly, trying to find its way.) His characters are surprising, fully drawn, and live wonderfully amazing lives--just the common folk, getting by from day to day. The contemporary history he exposes, the social difficulties of his characters, bring their world to full view. I was always surprised by what was happening and how they reacted. Another good read along these lines is anything by Orhan Pamuk--Turkish author.
Why has it taken so long to find this great literature?
Beautiful language, interesting observations into universal human condition, great introduction into writings of a giant in Arabic literature. I must read more!
Masterful Writer
I've read most of his works and have loved them all. Not just a good story, but a glimpse into a world most of us are ignorant about.
