    Opening some years after Palace Walk this second book charts the loosening of patriarchal control in the central family even as Egypt has nominally been given independence though the British are still in control behind the scenes The focus is mainly on the men of the family Khadija and Aisha are both married with children and play only small roles though it's striking that Khadija seems to have inherited her father's will to control in her

    It pales out when compared to the first volume of the trilogy The narrator spends far lesser time with the female characters And the three male characters are all obsessed with desire love or list as the case may be There are some beautiful lines all around though the only point of interest is Kamal's troubles as he discovers Darw

    I am glad that a friend warned me that this second book in the Cairo trilogy would not live up to the first one which I loved this one though well written wasn't nearly as interesting to me The women in the family are much in the background for one thing; another is that Kamal the youngest son spends long section

بعد وفاة فهمى ابن السيد أحمد عبدالجواد، تمر خمس سنوات، ويخرج الأب إلى الحياة لقد انتقلت بناته بعد زواجهن إلى حى قصر الشوق بالجمالية خلال العشرينات من هذا القرن، حيث ولدت زنوبة فى بيت العالمة زبيدة ولم يلتفت إليها السيد عبد الجوا This is the second book of the Cairo Trilogy that picks up approximately five years after the end of Palace Walk the previous book and covers the approximate time span from 1925 to 1927 of the life of a family living in old Cairo Egypt The previous book had ended with the tragic death of one of the sons who had shown great potential as a political leader At the beginning of this book we learn that the father of the family al Sayyid Ahmad had modified his profligate ways during the intervening five years and had abstained from adultery but continued with partying into the night At the beginning of this book he slips back into his old ways after all one can t live a penitent life foreverThe oldest son Yasin leaves the family home to move to the house of his deceased biological mother located on Palace of Desire Alley This move is forced because he married a woman unacceptable to the family his step mother in particular This second marriage of his soon fails like the first and he ends up marrying for a third time to an entertainer which is scandalous to the family s honor than the previous second marriageThe love sick yearnings of the youngest son Kamal are thoroughly explored by the book The account of his obsessive pinning for her love provides an account of the internal thoughts of a young man infatuated with a young lady He is in his upper teens his friends are headed in different directions some to school others to travel and work In the end his unreuited love pushes him into sampling the life styles of his older brother and fatherI m convinced that the story being told in this trilogy is largely autobiographic and that the author sees himself in the character of Kamal There are many pieces of evidence for this conclusion and the final giveaway is the fact that Kamal in this story aspires to be a writer of novels He dreams of writing a big long novel This trilogy fits those aspirations Mahfouz the author won the 1988 Nobel Prize in LiteratureThe political happenings in Egypt during this time period are mentioned but are very much peripheral to the story The conseuences of a fast modernizing society with differing expectations and possibilities are implicit throughout the storyThe book ends with simultaneous pending death and pending birth Near the end the aging father has some health problems leading the reader to expect perhaps he will die Instead the ending goes in another direction Her Husbands Christmas Bargain years after the end of Palace Walk the previous book and covers the approximate time span from 1925 to
