Ahdaf Soueif - novelist, com­men­ta­tor, ac­tivist - nav­i­gates her his­tory of Cairo and her jour­ney through the Rev­o­lu­tion that’s re­draw­ing its fu­ture. Through a map of sto­ries drawn from pri­vate his­tory and public record, Soueif charts a story of the rev­o­lu­tion that is both in­ti­mately hers and pub­licly Egyp­tian. Ahdaf Soueif was born and brought up in Cairo. When the Egyp­tian Rev­o­lu­tion of 2011 erupted on Jan­uary 25th, she, along with thou­sands of oth­ers, called Tahrir Square home for eigh­teen days. She re­ported for the world’s me­dia. This book presents her prose, rich with his­tor­i­cal de­tail and de­bate.
