Palace WalkBook - 2011
Introduces us to Sayyid's gentle, oppressed wife, Amina, his cloistered daughters, Aisha and Khadija, and his three sons--the tragic and idealistic Fahmy, the dissolute hedonist Yasin, and the soul-searching intellectual Kamal. The family's trials mirror those of their country during the years spanning the two world wars, as change comes to a society that has resisted it for centuries.
