? وقد ترك حياة الليل، يقرر عبد الجواد العودة إلى منزل زبيدة العالمة ويفاجأ بأن طفلة الأمس زنوبة قد كبرت وأصبحت فتاة توقع زنوبة السيد عبد الجواد فى حبها وتقنعه بشراء عوامة لها، ولكنها فى نفس الوقت تحب ياسين ابنه دون ان تعرف حقيقة ا?. 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 household there are some lovely comic scenes around her clashes with her mother in lawDesire is central and works as a chaotic force as Ahmad returns to his socialising Yasin manages to get through a couple marriages and Kamal now 17 falls in love The latter strand is particularly reminiscent of Proust bringing together issues of love memory and writingThe waning powers of Ahmad become ever poignant as he ages his grandchildren feel none of the respect and fear his own children had Kamal asserts his own will over choice of study and career and Ahmad is increasingly overshadowed by Yasin whose potency grows as that of his father retreats There s less of overt Egyptian politics than in the first book but I feel that this strand will emerge strongly in the final part of the trilogy

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 second book in The Cairo Trilogy follows the family and friends of Al Sayyid Ahmad as they pick up the pieces of personal disaster and move on The grip of the patriarch over his family loosens and Egypt s brittle social structure begins to demonstrate unexpected strengths The action starts in 1924 seven years have passed since the first book endedThis continuation I thought to be as good as Palace Walk Here Mahfouz exerts the same masterful control over the narrative Character development is delectable and the author knows exactly what and how much to say to give readers an engaging picture of each person A humorous side shows in this volume than in the first One typical gem comes to us when the Theory of Evolution suddenly takes center stage in the plot On the other hand this family and its friends need little help from theories to entertain readers with their ordinary antics Such is the mirthfulness that even people who don t usually smile while reading might find themselves making a concession to these pagesLike the first this second book in The Cairo Trilogy is exceptional literature Anyone who likes the first book will do well to take up this one too Palace of Desire will extend a special appeal to older readers who will relate warmly to many of the characters who animate the saga As with its predecessor I gave this book the highest rating because I saw no way the author could have improved on what he actually wrote
