Adrift On the Nile

By Mahfouz, Naguib




Naguib Mahfouz was born in Cairo in 1911 and began writing when he was seventeen. A student of philosophy and an avid reader, his works range from reimaginings of ancient myths to subtle commentaries on contemporary Egyptian politics and culture. Over a career that lasted more than five decades, he wrote 33 novels, 13 short story anthologies, numerous plays, and 30 screenplays. Of his many works, most famous is The Cairo Trilogy, consisting of Palace Walk (1956), Palace of Desire (1957), and Sugar Street (1957), which focuses on a Cairo family through three generations, from 1917 until 1952. In 1988, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, the first writer in Arabic to do so. He died in August 2006.

Adrift On The Nile

MAHFOUZ, NAGUIB

Doubleday and Company, Inc., New York: 1993. Hardcover with dustjacket in protective mylar cover. Good condition. Library discard. Back endpaper has been removed. It is the late 1960s, and for the group of friends who meet night after night on a houseboat moored akong the banks of the Nile, life is not what it used to be. Nasser has ushered in an age of enormous social change; responsibility is the watchword, and there is no time for the frivolous or the absurd. In this serious world, the theory of "art for art's ske" has been usurped by the concepts of committed theater, social realism, and art with a message for the people. These middle-aged and middle-class sons and daughters of the old bougeoisie are left high and dry, to gather beneath moonlight, smoking and chatting, hoping to re-create the cozy and enchanted world they so dearly miss. Translated into English from the Arabic by Frances Liardet. ISBN: 0385423225.

The American University in C., 2003. Paperback. Very Good. First published in 1966, Naguib Mahfouz's Adrift on the Nile is an atmosphe ric novel that dramatizes the rootlessness of Egypt's cosmopolitan middle c lass. Anis Zani is a bored and drug-addicted civil servant who is barely ho lding on to his job. Every evening he hosts a gathering on a houseboat on t he Nile, where he and a motley group of cynical and aimless friends share a water pipe full of kif, a mixture of tobacco and marijuana. When a young f emale journalist--an "alarmingly serious person"--joins them and begins sec retly documenting their activities, the group's harmony starts disintegrati ng, culminating in a midnight joyride that ends in tragedy.
