Heron by Ibrahim Aslan

Book Description

Set on the eve of the January 1977 bread riots against IMF austerity programs and privatization that nearly brought down President Anwar Sadat, "The Heron" catches Egypt in the mid-stream of its modern history, as seen through the prism of a long winter night in the Cairo neighborhood of Kit Kat. Since it first appeared in 1984, Ibrahim Aslan's "The Heron" has been a classic of modern Arabic literature and was the basis of the film Kit Kat.
