Rhadopis of Nubia by Naguib Mahfouz
Book DescriptionNobel laureate Naguib Mahfouz mines the riches of his homeland s ancient past in "R"hadopis of Nubia," "an unforgettable love story set against the high politics of Egypt s Sixth Dynasty. While the ravishing courtesan Rhadopis is bathing, a falcon lifts one of her golden sandals and drops it into the lap of the Pharaoh Merenra II. Upon hearing Rhadopis described as beauty itself, the young pharaoh decides to return Rhadopis s sandal himself. When the two meet, they are immediately seized by a passion far stronger than their ability to resist. Thus begins a love affair that makes them the envy of Egyptian society. But blinded by their love and the extravagant attentions they lavish on each other, they ignore the growing resentment of the world around them in this extraordinary tale of star-crossed love."

Naguib Mahfouz was born in Cairo in 1911 and began writing when he was seventeen.

Of his many works, most famous is The Cairo Trilogy, consisting of Palace Walk (1956), Palace of Desire (1957), and Sugar Street (1957), which focuses on a Cairo family through three generations, from 1917 until 1952. In 1988, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, the first writer in Arabic to do so. He died in August 2006.
