A new volume of three novelspreviously published separately by Anchorby Naguib Mahfouz, winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature. Together withThe Beggar, The Thief and The Dogs, and Autumn Quail(published by Anchor in December 2000), these novels represent a comprehensive collection of Mahfouzs artful meditations on post-revolution Egypt. Diverse in style and narrative technique, they render a nuanced and universally resonant vision of modern life in the Middle East.Respected Sir, a latter-dayBleak Housein Arabic (The New York Times), revisits a familiar themevaulting ambitionin a powerful and religious metaphor.Wedding Song,one of Mahfouzs most enjoyable works (The Chicago Tribune), is a psychological drama, focusing on how four very different kinds of minds apprehend and reckon with the realities that surround them.The Searchis a powerful, lurid, and compelling story of lust, greed, and murder.
