Nile Sparrows

Set in the Nile-side neighborhood of Warraq, Aslan's novel chronicles the daily rhythm of the life of rural migrants to Cairo and their complex webs of familial and neighborly relations over half a century. In an elliptical narrative, Aslan limns a series of vignettes that mimic the workings of memory, moving backward and forward in time.

Ibrahim Aslan was born in Tanta in 1937. He is the author of The Heron (AUC Press, 2005) and is culture editorin the Cairo bureau of the London-based daily newspaper al-Hayat.
