By Naguib Mahfouz
From Nobel laureate Naguib Mahfouz: the 3 brilliant novels—published in an omnibus version for the 1st time—that shape an ancient-Egyptian counterpart to his recognized Cairo Trilogy.
Mahfouz reaches again millions of years to carry us stories from his homeland's majestic early history—tales of the Egyptian the Aristocracy and of conflict, star-crossed love, and the divine rule of the pharoahs. In Khufu's Wisdom, the mythical Fourth Dynasty monarch faces the chance of the tip of his rule and the chance that his daughter has fallen in love with the fellow prophesied to be his successor. Rhadopis of Nubia is the unforgettable tale of the charismatic younger Pharoah Merenra II and the ravishing courtesan Rhadopis, whose love affair makes them the envy of all Egyptian society. And Thebes at War tells the epic tale of Egypt's victory over the Asiatic foreigners who ruled the rustic for 2 centuries.
Three Novels of historic Egypt provides us a blinding tapestry of historic Egypt and reminds us of the amazing artistry of Naguib Mahfouz.
