Palace Walk : Nobel Prize Winner, Paperback / softback Book

Palace Walk : Nobel Prize Winner Paperback / softback

Part of the Cairo Trilogy series

Description

A sweeping and evocative portrait of both a family and a country struggling to move toward independence in a society that has resisted change for centuries.

Set against the backdrop of Britain's occupation of Egypt immediately after World War I, Palace Walk introduces us to the Al Jawad family. Ahmad, a middle-class shopkeeper runs his household strictly according to the Qur'an while at night he explores the pleasures of Cairo.

A tyrant at home, Ahmad forces his gentle, oppressed wife and two daughters to live cloistered lives behind the house's latticed windows, while his three very different sons live in fear of his harsh will.
