Published in 1949, this book is the brainchild of Naguib Mahfouz, an Egyptian author. It is set in the suburbs of Cairo during the late 1930s, presenting the challenges encountered by a middle-class family as they grapple with the specter of poverty after the demise of their sole breadwinner, the father. The narrative excels in crafting well-defined characters, thoughtfully attuned to the era and the backdrop, and proceeds with celerity to illuminate each individual’s perspective on the world.
