In this gripping and suspenseful novella from the Egyptian Nobel Prize-winner, three young friends survive interrogation by the secret police, only to find their lives poisoned by suspicion, fear, and betrayal. At a Cairo café in the 1960s, a legendary former belly dancer lovingly presides over a boisterous family of regulars, including a group of idealistic university students. One day, amid reports of a wave of arrests, three of the students disappear: the excitable Hilmi, his friend Ismail, and Ismail's beautiful girlfriend Zaynab. When they return months later, they are apparently unharmed and yet subtly and profoundly changed. It is only years later, after their lives have been further shattered, that the narrator pieces together the young people's horrific stories and learns how the government used them against one another. In a riveting final chapter, their torturer himself enters the Café and sits among his former victims, claiming a right to join their society of the disillusioned. Now translated into English for the first time, Naguib Mahfouz's tale of the insidious effects of government-sanctioned torture and the suspension of rights and freedoms in a time of crisis is shockingly contemporary. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Some of the most fascinating sculptures to have survived from ancient Egypt are the colossal statues of Akhenaten, erected at the beginning of his reign (1353-1335 BC) in his new temple to the Aten at Karnak. Fragments of more than thirty statues are now known, showing the paradoxical features combining male and female, young and aged, characteristic of representations of this king. Did he look like this in real life? Was his iconography skillfully devised to mirror his concept of his role in the universe? And was more than one individual represented in the colossi? The author presents the history of the discovery of the statue fragments from 1925 to the present day; the profusion of opinions on the appearance of the king and his alleged medical conditions; and the various suggestions for an interpretation of the perplexing evidence. A complete catalog of all major fragments is included, as well as many pictures not previously published.

Modern man is not fascinated by ancient Egypt without good reason. The Nile Civilisation is not only interesting because of its age but because of its mystery. Who can completely answer the riddle of the Sphinx, even today? What strange mysteries are still buried among the measurements of the Great Pyramid? How many wonders are yet incarcerated in the Valley of the Kings? Johnny Cole and Chris Saunders set out for the Eye Temple at Luxor. The discovered evidence of a strange cult, hitherto quite unsuspected. The search took them to Thebes and beyond. From Necropolis to Necropolis they traced the terrifying ancient truth to learn at last that the Eye-god still lived, deadly, ruthless, malevolent. Would twentieth century weapons work on a being older than time itself? If not, how did a mortal fight against an evil deity?

Austin And The Secret Of Karnak House

Author : Stuart Taylor
ISBN : 9781466122246
Genre : Juvenile Fiction

This book is the sequel to Book 1 of The Austin Chronicles, "Austin". Intended for readers over nine to adult, this is a classic adventure story set both in the present day and the Second World War. The lavish plot deals with spies, secret-codes, and Austin's career in the British Secret Service as part of a mysterious expedition to be the first nation to find the lost continent of Atlantis and an awesome mystic force known only to the ancient Atlanteans that can both heal and destroy. Though set largely in the present day, the story also glimpses a time where computer development was in its infancy, where mechanical computers look set to prevail, and where the horrific consequences of racial persecution are made real to young readers. Like the first book in the Austin Chronicles, "Austin and the Secret of Karnak House" is an anthropomorphic tale with animal characters whose humorous antics and conversation provide light-hearted contrast to some of the darker human activities in this book.
