Palace WalkBook - 2011
"...introduces us to Sayyid's gentle, oppressed wife, Amina, and his cloistered daughters Aisha and Khadija, and his three sons--the tragic and idealistic Fahmy, the dissolute hedonist Yasin, and the soul-searching intellectual Kamal. The family's trials mirror those of their country during the years spanning the two world wars, as change comes to a society that has resisted it for centuries."--P.  of cover.
