Description
Egypt is as old as history itself, home to some of the world's greatest treasures, a pantheon of gods and kings, and the roots of the civilized world. Today it is the political and cultural heart of the Arab world and a country of startling contrasts and contradictions. Paul William Roberts, the winner of a PEN Canada Paul Kidd Courage Award for bravery in journalism, gives us ancient and modern Egypt at once in this "smart, energetic, hysterically funny" travelogue (LATimes). In Cairo he spends a terrifying night alone in the central chamber of the Great Pyramid and then is smuggled into the clandestine gathering of a Sufi tariqa. In Nubia he is carried by boat to the great temple of Isis at Philae and reads Death on the Nile while sleeping in Agatha Christie's bedroom.
