Item description for City of Love and Ashes by Yusuf Idris...

Cairo, January 1952. Egypt is at a critical point in its modern history, struggling to throw off the yoke of the seventy-year British occupation and its corrupt royalist allies. Hamza is a committed young radical, his goal to build a secret armed brigade to fight for freedom, independence, and national self-esteem. Fawziya is a woman with a mission too, keen to support the cause. Among the ashes of the city love may grow, but at a time of national struggle what place do personal feelings have beside the greater love for a shackled homeland? In this finely crafted novel, Yusuf Idris, best known as the master of the Arabic short story, brings to life not only some of the most human characters in modern Arabic fiction but the soul of Cairo itself and the soul of a national consciousness focused on liberation.

Reviews - What do customers think about City of Love and Ashes?

Beautiful History  Mar 10, 2007
This is a beautifully written love story but at the same time puts the readers squarely in the events of the Revolution. The characters are so real and the descriptions so fresh that you feel a part of their lives. Although fictional, it makes us realize what it was like to live in Cairo during this period of history.
Very good  Mar 31, 2001
The author really captures the scenario of Egypt at the time of the Revolution. A must read for all Egyptian history majors
