Book of The Month

 

The Diaries of Waguih Ghali
An Egyptian Writer in the Swinging Sixties
Volume 1: 1964–66
Edited by May Hawas
Including an interview with Diana Athill

 

Waguih Ghali (1930?–69), author of the acclaimed novel Beer in the Snooker Club, was a libertine, sponger, and manic depressive, but also an extraordinary writer, a pacifist, and a savvy political commentator.  

This first volume also includes his reminiscences of his childhood in Alexandria and Cairo, drawing in bittersweet nostalgia a picture of a bygone era in Egypt, while in the background loom what would become milestone events in his adopted countries in subsequent decades.
