Description - Midaq Alley by Naguib Mahfouz

Considered by many to be Mahfouz's best novel, "Midaq Alley" centers around the residents of one of the hustling, teeming back alleys of Cairo. No other novel so vividly evokes the sights and sounds of the city. The universality and timelessness of this book cannot be denied.
