Description
In 1950s Sudan, Mahmoud Bey's dynasty has amassed a fortune through their trading firm, but when Mahmoud's son and heir, Nur, suffers a debilitating accident, the family stands divided in the face of an uncertain future, in this novel by the author of the New York Times Notable Book The Translator. As British rule nears its end, the country is torn between modernizing influences and the call of traditions past—a conflict reflected in the tensions between Mahmoud's two wives: the younger, Nabilah, longs to return to Egypt, while Waheeba lives traditionally behind veils and closed doors. It's not until the injured Nur asserts himself that his own spirit and the frayed bonds of his family can begin to mend.

"Rich in detail and generous in spirit toward its complex characters, [Lyrics Alley] showcases Aboulela's talent for connecting political and personal upheaval. [An] elegantly written family epic that brings to mind Naguib Mahfouz's The Cairo Trilogy."—Kirkus Reviews
