Description - Respected Sir, Wedding Song by Naguib Mahfouz
A new volume of three novels-previously published separately by Anchor-by Naguib Mahfouz, winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature. Together with The Beggar, The Thief and The Dogs, and Autumn Quail (published by Anchor in December 2000), these novels represent a comprehensive collection of Mahfouz's artful meditations on post-revolution Egypt. Diverse in style and narrative technique, they render a nuanced and universally resonant vision of modern life in the Middle East.Respected Sir, "a latter-day Bleak House in Arabic" (The New York Times), revisits a familiar theme-vaulting ambition-in a powerful and religious metaphor. Wedding Song, "one of Mahfouz's most enjoyable works" (The Chicago Tribune), is a psychological drama, focusing on how four very different kinds of minds apprehend and reckon with the realities that surround them. The Search is a powerful, lurid, and compelling story of lust, greed, and murder."The incredible variety of Mahfouz's writing continues to dazzle our eyes."-The Washington Post
