Arabic short stories, 1945-1965
A collection of stories by some writers already known in translation to Western reader--Tewfik el Hakim, Naguib Mahfouz, Youssef Idris--and others less well known outside the Arab world, this book offers a sampling of a literary form which showed a particularly interesting and vigorous development during the two decades after the Second World War.
