Book cover for the English translation of Private Pleasures by Hamdy el-Gazzar. Published by AUC Press (2013).
From the inside cover:
'Private Pleasures describes the three-day sex, drink, and drug binge of a thirty-something newsreader in the back streets and crumbling apartments of his native Giza—that pullulating mass of humanity that, like an ugly sister, sits opposite Cairo on the Nile’s West bank…a world of menace and wonder inhabited by philosophical prostitutes, nightmarish butchers, serene Quran-readers, pious family members, religious conmen, autistic tissue-sellers, and others.'
