Beer in the Snooker Club by Waguih Ghali

Beer in the Snooker Club

By Waguih Ghali

This reissue of the late Waguih Ghali's only novel makes us mourn his loss all the more keenly. A plainspoken writer of consummate wryness, grace, and humor, the Egyptian author chronicles the lives of a polyglot Cairene upper crust, shortly after the fall of King Farouk, who are thoroughly unprepared to change their neo-feudal ways. "This is the best book to date about post-Farouk Egypt."-Sylvie Drake, Los Angeles Times
