Review:

** 'Miles should be applauded for telling their stories so compellingly, and for giving us such a detailed insight into their everyday lives. * SCOTSMAN * ** 'An intriguing read and, as an introduction to Egyptian life, it's fascinating * DAILY MAIL * ** 'Playing Cards mixes personal vignettes with an informed overview of Egyptian politics, and although unflinching about Cairo's problems, Miles shows his affection for this great city of every page. * FINANCIAL TIMES * ** 'Behind the veil are the frustrations, fads, fashions and fallibilities familiar to women the world over. Miles is a loving listener, whose understanding of the Islamic world is sharpened by tea and sympathy * THE TIMES *
