Pyramid Texts

Weaving strands of Sufi mysticism and medieval Islamic history into ancient Egypt's most enduring symbols, Pyramid Texts beguiles the imagination with its masterful use of language, its haunting parables, and its glimpses of divine revelation. In a series of chapters each shorter than the last so that they taper ultimately into nothingness” the Gamal al-Ghitani traces the obsessions that have drawn men over the centuries to the brooding presence of the pyramids.

Gamal al-Ghitani was born in 1945. He has written thirteen novels, including Zayni Barakat (AUC Press, 2004), and six collections of short stories. He is editor-in-chief of the literary review Akhbar al-adab.
