About the Author
Haggag Hassan Oddoul was born in Alexandria in 1944 to parents who had left their native village in the Nubian region of southern Egypt. He was a construction worker on the Aswan High Dam, then served in the Egyptian armed forces during the War of Attrition and the October 1973 War. He began writing at the age of forty, and has written short stories, novels, and plays. Nights of Musk was awarded the State Prize for Short Stories in 1990. Anthony Calderbank, who lived in Egypt for many years, has had a long interest in Arabic language and literature. His most recent translation is Rhadopis of Nubia by Naguib Mahfouz (AUC Press, 2003).
