Dreams Of Departure

In this second collection of writing based on his own dreams serialized in a Cairo magazine before his death in 2006, Egyptian Nobel laureate Naguib Mahfouz again displays his matchless ability to tell epic stories in uncannily terse form. We meet more of the real and unreal figures that filled the author’s life with glory and worry, ecstasy and ennui, in tales dreamed by a mind too fertile to ever truly rest.

Naguib Mahfouz was born in 1911 in the crowded Cairo district of Gamaliya. He wrote nearly 40 novel-length works, plus hundreds of short stories and numerous screenplays. He was awarded the Nobel prize for literature in 1988. He died in Cairo in 2006 at the age of 94. Raymond Stock is writing a biography of Naguib Mahfouz. He is the translator of Naguib Mahfouz's Voices from the Other World (2002), Khufu's Wisdom (2003), The Dreams (2004), and The Seventh Heaven (2005), all published by the AUC Press.
