Ten Again

Ibrahim al-Mazini was one of the great humorists and stylists of twentieth-century Arabic prose literature, capturing the foibles and triumphs of Cairo's middle classes of the 1930s and 1940s in exceptionally stylish prose. This collection gathers in one volume some of al-Mazini's best short fiction, including two novellas: Midu and His Accomplices and Ten Again.

Born in Cairo, Ibrahim al-Mazini (1890 1949) was a major figure in modern Arabic literature, as a humorist, prose stylist, and critic. William Maynard Hutchins teaches at Appalachian State University, is the principal translator of Naguib Mahfouz's Cairo Trilogy (AUC Press, 1989 1992), and has most recently translated Ibrahim al-Koni's Anubis (AUC Press, 2005). He was awarded the 2013 Saif Ghobash Banipal Prize for Arabic Literary Translation for his translation of A Land without Jasmine by Wajdi al-Ahdal.
