The Yacoubian Building
'An intriguing and highly charged novel!Based on a real-life building in downtown Cairo, Alaa Al Aswany's eponymous structure is a microcosm of modern Egyptian society!Al Aswany manages to capture the challenges facing much of the developing world!a superbly crafted feat of storytelling.' Tash Aw, Daily Telegraph 'A sharp, humorous novel.' Caroline Moorhead, in the Spectator 'Books of the Year' 'There are many stories here. The book is elaborate to bursting point, but always controlled, always whole. It is as juicy and satisfying as a shiny apple, its taste both strange and familiar, compassionate and bitter.' The Times 'In its affectionate portrait of feckless and flawed humanity, this is a rich and engaging book; in its analysis of the Islamist threat, it is a brave and indispensable one.' Daily Mail '"The Yacoubian Building" is the sort of dense neighbourhood novel which, though quite out of style when set in London or Paris, has been revived for the banlieue of downtown Cairo. With its parade of big-city characters, both ludicrous and tender, its warm heart and political indignation, it belongs to a literary tradition that goes back to the 1840s, to Eugene Sue and Charles Dickens.' Guardian 'Al Aswany is excellent on the bitterness young Egyptians feel towards a country where hard-won qualifications are worthless unless backed with money!an absorbing portrait of the struggle to survive in the Arab world's "best friend of the West".' Observer 'You don't get many writers like Alaa Al Aswany in the West any more. "The Yacoubian Building" paints a marvellous picture of modern Egypt with all its hypocrisies and fanaticism -- the gulf between rich and poor reminiscent of Dickensian London. Like the late Naguib Mahfouz, Alaa Al Aswany is a world writer, making Egyptian concerns into human ones and beautifully illuminating our always extraordinary and sometimes sad and baffling world.' The Times 'As chock--a--block with vivid characters, diverse storylines and moral and social indignation as a Victorian novel, it is as readbale as it is courageous' Peter Kemp, in the Sunday Times 'Books of the Year' 'This bestselling Arabic novel is an engaging series of stories, peopled with wonderful characters, that builds to a passionate climax.' Daily Telegraph 'A restless human drama and a resonant history lesson.' Sunday Times 'If only every encounter with the dentist were this enjoyable.' The Observer 'It's not hard to see why this Egyptian novel has created a furore in the Arab world!It's a fabulous, acutely observed story of human foibles, full of vivid scenes and extraordinary characters.' Mail on Sunday 'Each flawed character in this beautifully woven tale embodies a facet of modern Egypt, painting a picture of a country struggling with its principles and squandered promises, while seeking solace in Islam.' thelondonpaper
