The Cairo House
A Novel

Semia Serageldin

Paper $19.95    |    0-8156-0793-8    |   2003

A work that depicts the glamorous Egypt of the pashas and King Farouk, the police state of the colonels who seized power in 1952, the post-Sadat years, and the rise of fundamentalism.

"Serageldin's richly observed study of family and culture in transition and crisis succeeds both as ironical Proustian reminiscence and as a telling exploration of the ambiguities of status, loyalty, and belonging."
dashKirkus Reviews

"Using a beautiful prose style, Serageldin makes Gigi's problems vivid and real... Fascinating and entertaining."
dashLibrary Journal

Samia Serageldin was born in Cairo and lived in Europe and the United States. She is currently affiliated with the Arabic program at Duke University as an instructor. She is the author of Holidays in France.
