Lodging House by Khairy Shalaby
Book DescriptionA young student's dreams for a better future are shattered after he assaults one of his instructors for discriminating against him. From then on, he begins his descent into the underworld. Penniless, he seeks refuge in Wikalat Atiya, a run-down caravanserai that has become the home of the town's marginal and underprivileged characters, and becomes a part of the lodging house's community of rogues.

Times Travels of the Pickle and Sweet Vendor, Hardback (August 2010)
Ibn Shalabi, like many Egyptians, is looking for a job. Yet, unlike most of his fellow citizens, he is prone to sudden dislocations in time. Armed with his trusty briefcase and his Islamic-calendar wristwatch, he bounces uncontrollably through the Fatimid, Ayyubid, and Mamluk periods, with occasional return visits to the 1990s.
