Editorial Reviews

Review

“An intimate portrait of a large, closely knit Jewish family in Egypt when that country was the cosmopolitan El Dorado of the Middle East, this loving memoir charts an idyllic secluded childhood and tender family relationships-offering a rate insight into what it was like to be Jews in Egypt at that time.” –Claudia Roden, author of The Book of Jewish Food and The New Book of Middle Eastern Food

Review

“A beautifully written book that reads more like a novel, Jean Naggar’s memoir of her Egyptian Jewish family brings to life the unique community brutally destroyed in 1956 with the Suez crisis. Sipping from the Nile will do much to bring some equilibrium to the plight of Jews from Arab lands.” –Naomi Ragen, author of The Saturday Wife and The Ghost of Hannah Mendes

"Jean Naggar’s memoir Sipping from the Nile brings the world of Egypt’s privileged class to us like a Downton Abbey set in Cairo. This is history told with the fluidity of poetry, the sensuality of life, and with empathy that resonates from an extended family determined to survive upheaval." -Emily Rubin, author of Stalina
