A lifetime ago, Fakhreddin had been an idealistic young lawyer, seeking to fight corruption from his modest quarter of Cairo. Then, a botched attempt on his life forced him to flee the country, propelling him on a wild journey that would lead to Afghanistan's jihadi training camps. He was transformed into a trained killer, and never once lost sight of his goal: revenge. But did he lose sight of the only person that really mattered to him, his son, Omar? At the very core of Fakhreddin's bold, nail-biting exploits are his broken family, and broken heart, and his search for redemption and a way home.

The first edition of this book, completed in 1970, was hailed as a major contribution to scholarship on the development of Arabic fiction in the 19th and early 20th centuries. In this revised and greatly expanded second edition, Matti Moosa has added five entirely new chapters - one on the popular dialogues of Abd Allah Nadim, and four devoted to 20th-century fiction culminating with the novels of Maguib Mahfouz. He has also incorporated the results of more than two decades of fresh research.
