From one of Egyptâ€™s most acclaimed novelists, here is a
vivid chronicle of Egyptian society, with penetrating
analysis of all the most urgent issuesâ€”economic stagnation,
police brutality, poverty, the harassment of women and of
the Christian minority, to name a fewâ€”that led to the
stunning overthrow of the Mubarak government. Al-Aswany
addresses himself to all the questions being asked within
Egypt and beyond: who will be the next president, and how
will he be chosen in a land where heretofore only
simpletons, opportunists and stooges involved themselves
with elections? What role will the Muslim Brotherhood play?
How can democratic reforms be effected among a people used
to such contradictions as the religiously observant
policeman who commits torture? In a candid and controversial
assessment of both the potential and limitations that will
determine his countryâ€™s future, Al-Aswany reveals why the
revolt that surprised the world was destined to happen.
