“A window into a different world.” ―Daily Mail on THE BRIDGES OF CONSTANTINE
“Remarkable, insightful . . . The elegiac quality is present not just in the themes, but also in the astonishingly poetic language throughout . . . I stopped and marveled every few pages . . . This is one of the richest and most evocative books that I have read all year. I only hope we don't have to wait too long for the two sequels to The Bridges of Constantine to be published in English. The Arab-speaking world shouldn't get to keep Mosteghanemi's novels all to itself.” ―The Independent
“Ahlem has carved a place for herself as one of the most important writers of the Arab world.” ―Youssef Chahine, Egyptian director, winner of the Cannes Film Lifetime Achievement Award
