One thought on “Sugar Street

  1. William1

    Decades of whoring and drink have finally caught up with the old rou , Ahmad Abd al Jawad He is enfeebled, must eat yogurt at every meal, takes his medication and does not unduly strain himself I cannot really give a sense of the depths of this man s hypocrisy He exacted piety for God and himself at home for decades, while participating in the most dissolute of lifestyles with his besotted cronies For that story you will have to read the two excellent predecessors in this trilogy, Palace Walk an [...]

    I know the Cairo Trilogy is really just one long book, but Sugar Street was the best of the three segments The first two were kind of soap opera y, but they served the purpose to get you invested in the family and specifically to understand the forces that had shaped all of them so the heavy hitting existentialist stuff in Sugar Street had a lot of impact Kamal, Aisha, Yasin and their next generation, Abd al Mun im and Ahmad deliver observations and actions that strike to the core of the human e [...]
