Sufism in the Contemporary Arabic Novel

Ziad Elmarsafy

Published by Edinburgh University Press

Edinburgh Studies in Modern Arabic Literature

  • Covers a broad range of modern Arabic novelists including Naguib Mahfouz and Tayeb Salih

  • Studies authors such as Al-Koni and Ouettar who have received very little critical attention in English
