The Essential Naguib Mahfouz

Novels, Short Stories, Autobiography

Translated by Denys Johnson-Davies

A Publication of The American University in Cairo Press

A selection of the most important works of Egypt's Nobel literature laureate.

Naguib Mahfouz, the first and only writer of Arabic to be awarded the Nobel prize for literature, wrote prolifically from the 1930s until shortly before his death in 2006, in a variety of genres: novels, short stories, plays, screenplays, a regular weekly newspaper column, and in later life his intensely brief and evocative Dreams.
