About the Author


Described by Tawfiq al-Hakim as "the renovator and genius of the short story," Yusuf Idris was one of the great figures of twentieth-century Arabic literature. He was born in 1927, graduated from medical college in 1951, and practiced medicine for several years. His first collection of stories was published in 1956. In 1960 he gave up medicine to become editor of the Cairo daily newspaper al-Gumhuriya, and he continued to write and publish prolifically until his death in 1991. His novel City of Love and Ashes was published in English translation by the AUC Press in 1998. The Essential Yusuf Idris, edited by Denys Johnson-Davies, was published by the AUC Press in 2009.


Rasheed El-Enany is emeritus professor of modern Arabic literature and director of the Institute of Arab Islamic Studies at the University of Exeter. He is the author of Naguib Mahfouz: His Life and Times (AUC Press, 2007).
