The Yacoubian Building

The Yacoubian Building - Alaa Al Aswany A satirical & compassionate portrait of pre-revolution Egypt from gay bars to elite universities to terrorist training camps to the corrupt generals & politicians that ruled the country.

p.s. Many reviewers on GR say they find its use of sterotypes distasteful but imho it depends on whether you read them straight or as satires.
