The Wisdom of Naguib Mahfouz : from the Works of the Nobel Laureate Hardback
Edited by Aleya Serour
With a writing career spanning some seventy years, Naguib Mahfouz is one of the most recognized writers in the world.
His study of philosophy at what is now Cairo University greatly influenced his works, as did his wide readings and his work in the government and in the Cinema Organization.
The Wisdom of Naguib Mahfouz, like the earlier Life's Wisdom, is a unique collection of quotations selected from the great author's works, offering philosophical insights on themes such as childhood, youth, love, marriage, war, freedom, death, the supernatural, the afterlife, the soul, immortality, and many other subjects that take us through life's journey.
