Description: Nobel Prize-winning Egyptian author Naguib Mahfouz's masterwork, The Cairo Trilogy, is the engrossing saga of a Muslim family in Cairo during Egypt's occupation by British forces in the early decades of the twentieth century. The novels trace three generations of the tyrannical patriarch Ahmad Abd al-Jawad's family -- his sons, the tragic and idealistic Fahmy, the sensualist Yasin, and scholarly Kamal; his daughters, the beautiful widow Aisha and homely wife and mother Khadija; and his five grandchildren.

The first novel, Palace Walk, introduces us to the Al-Jawad clan, whose family trials will mirror those of its turbulent homeland during the years spanning two World Wars. Palace of Desire brings to life 1920s Cairo in an unforgettable story of the violent clash between ideals and realities, dreams and desires, as change comes to a society that has resisted it for centuries. The concluding novel, Sugar Street, set in the 1930s and 40s, chronicles the family's third generation, as the old and ill patriarch watches one grandson becomes a communist, one a fundamentalist, and another the paramour of a high-ranking politician. Filled with compelling drama, earthy humor, and remarkable insight, The Cairo Trilogy is the achievement of a master storyteller.
