Politically this novel deals with the historical past. Egypt has become less of a socialist country than what it appears to be. Influence and wealth reside over qualifications. One of Mahfouz's most lyrical novels, this story is an insider's look at old Alexandria, offering the classic plot of intertwined characters living in a small hotel in post-revolutinary Egypt. A retired journalist and his woman friend, who manages the hotel, combine efforts to re-examine an Egypt which has just undergone the Socialist Revolution.

"Like all novels worth their salt, "Miramar" allows us the rare privilege of entering a national psychology, in a way that a thousandjournalistic articles or television documentaries could not acheive; and perhaps more importantly, beyond, that, we can encounter in it a racila temperment that has been widely misunderstood in the West." -John Fowles

From the Publisher:
Naguib Mahfouz is the best known and most successful Arabic novelist. He graduated from Cairo University in 1934 with a degree in philosophy. He has published some twenty volumes of novels and short stories, many of which have been made into films. English translations are constantly challanged by the stylistic Arabic language. This book is about Egypt.
From the Inside Flap:
A highly charged, tightly written tale of intersecting lives that provides us with both an engaging and powerful story as well as a vivid portrait of life in Egypt in the late 1960's.
