He currently writes for Rose al-Yusuf magazine. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to understand anything of what life is like in Egypt.
The well-crafted narrative is told in 4 parts - each part from the perspective of a different character, each character inter-related to the others
I got this novel w/o being familiar w/ the author but interested b/c I noted that he's Egyptian - I've never read an Egyptian novel before. I'm almost completely ignorant of Egyptian culture - esp recent Egyptian culture. The well-crafted narrative is told in 4 parts - each part from the perspective of a different character, each character inter-related to the others. As such, The Man Who Lost His Shadow is almost 'Cubist' in the sense that we get 4 different perspectives on the same story - just not all at once as one might in a Cubist painting.
Fathy Ghanem, translated by Desmond Stewart. ISBN: 978-0-89410-207-3. A sober and lucid realism worthy of Maupassant. -Francis King, Sunday Telegraph. What I most admire is the sheer literary skill with which the material is shaped and handled. The life of a young, ambitious Cairo journalist as seen through the eyes of the two women who love him and the two colleagues who befriend him, only to be betrayed. First published in Arabic. Fathy Ghanem is an Egyptian novelist and journalist.
I read this book 15 years ago and I read it only once, but it remains to be one of the most memorable books that I have ever read. GET this book (written in the 60 's!) before it goes out of print - limited availability, but surely a must-have!
