Florida is reading Naguib Mahfouz's The Thief and the Dogs
Unbeknownst to me... here's the link to the Big Read Egypt/U.S. I just finished the book and was looking for an image for the blog. What a great choice. It's an interesting novella, certainly for 1961 it must have been remarkable... a stream of consciousness attempt to get inside the mind of Said Mahran, a thief turned murderer.... a shade of Dostoevsky, perhaps? Not as clear, but still really interesting.
