Reviews

"Captivating and controversial .. . .an amazing glimpse of modern Egyptian society and culture."--New York Review of Books
"[A] hilarious, sensual, bawdy and beautiful novel."--Nerve
"...tremendously likable.... This vision of life connects high with low, rich with poor, through shared vices and needs."--San Francisco Chronicle
