The Journey Of Ibn Fattouma

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.

There is a very light abrasion apparent on the dust jacket from a previous owner's label. "Ibn Fattouma takes the advice of his boyhood tutor, who told him that travel is a good method for finding the meaning of life, and joins a carvan journeying to other lands "What is the best way to organize a society? Betrayed by his sweetheart, young Ibn Fattouma of "the land of Islam" begins a journey in search of wisdom. In Mashriq, whose citizens go naked and worship the moon, he marries Arousa, a pagan woman. Thrown out of Mashriq for trying to bring up his son as a Muslim, he next stops in Haira, a land whose bloody king is worshiped as God. Ibn Fattouma escapes imprisonment for Halba, where all religions are welcomed and Muslim homosexuals peacefully demonstrate for gay rights. There he marries a Muslim female pediatrician who teaches him the value of an Islam "of independent judgment." Next the hero visits Aman, a communist state with full employment but no personal freedoms. He never reaches his ultimate goal, Gebel, land of perfection"..

Mahfouz, Naguib

New York. 1992. Doubleday. 1st Doubleday Edition. Very Good in Dustjacket. ISBN:0385423233. Translated from the Arabic by Denys Johnson-Davies. 149 pages. hardcover. Jacket illustration by Steven Rydberg. FROM THE PUBLISHER - First published in Arabic in 1983, this brief but powerful parable is set in a mythical, timeless Middle East. It is presented as the journal of a wanderer known as Ibn Fattouma, whose boyhood tutor had extolled the virtues of travel as a way of finding the true meaning of life. He joins a caravan and sets out to explore the world, his ultimate destination the enigmatic land of Gebel. Raised in an Islamic society, Ibn Fattouma finds to his surprise that many of the countries he visits, though heathen, are in some ways superior to his own. His first stop results in marriage to a non-believer, and children. However, war with another country and a clash with a city official cause him to lose his family, and he is forced to leave. In another country he is imprisoned for twenty years, accused of crimes against the state. Civil war frees him, and he moves on again, always seeking an intangible he is never able to find, always vulnerable to the winds of social and political change. Finally, he joins a caravan bound for Gebel-a country so distant and mysterious that no one has ever been known to reach it and return to tell the tale. The Swedish Academy of Letters in awarding Naguib Mahfouz the 1988 Nobel prize for literature noted that Mahfouz ‘through works rich in nuance-now clear-sightedly realistic, now evocatively ambiguous-has formed an Arabic narrative art that applies to all mankind.’Naguib Mahfouz was born in 1911 in the crowded Cairo district of Gamaliyya, an area on which he has drawn heavily for the setting of many of his novels. He worked in various government ministries until his retirement in 1971. He began writing at the age of seventeen, and his first novel, set in ancient Egypt, was published in 1939. Since then he has written over thirty novels and more than a hundred short stories, many of which have been made into successful films. Today Naguib Mahfouz lives in the Cairo suburb of Agouza with his wife and two daughters. The Swedish Academy of Letters in awarding Naguib Mahfouz the 1988 Nobel Prize for literature noted that Mahfouz ‘through works rich in nuance--now clear-sightedly realistic, now evocatively ambiguous--has formed an Arabic narrative art that applies to all mankind.’. inventory #17053 ISBN: 0385423233.
