sophia_elina "You have a low opinion of art. My only consolation is that there's nothing on earth that escapes your doubts. We understand with our minds but live with our hearts. Despite your sceptical stance, you love, work together with other people, and share in the political life of your nation. Whether we are conscious of it or not, behind each of these initiatives there is a principle that is no less powerful than faith. Art is the interpreter of the human world." |

onebedoublelo7 Last year, I told my friends who work at the bookstore here in Egypt that I wanted to have a better understanding of modern #Egypt. They recommended (starting with) these two books #TheCairoTrilogy ( #PalaceWalk, #PalaceOfDesire, #SugarStreet ) by #NaguibMahfouz #NobelPrizeWinner and #TheYacoubianBuilding by #AlaaAlAswany amongst others 2y

therealsphinx One of the better books I've read in a while. #TheCairoTrilogy takes you in depth to every character of a family for three generations. Incredible Egyptian history. Incredible in depth look into the politics, cultures, family dynamics of families in Egypt from 1910-1950. Mahfouz is a great writer from this series of novels alone! If you're cool reading a 1300+ page book, definitely work the time. #reading #books #novels #knowledge #EveryMansLibrary #history #Egypt 2y
