    Beautifully and humorously written this semi autobiographical novel records the 1930s and 1940s as they were witnessed by an elite Lebanese lady who was born and raised in Alexandria and how her world placidly and blissfully passed by unscathed by the tumult violence and massacre which seized Europe at the time While Britain for instance ordered its citizens to tighten their belts Egypt was seen as land of plenty and surplus cocktails and camels This life of ease for many continued uninterrupted until the Triple Aggression on Suez in 1956 when foreigners started to flee Egypt en mass though they had been trickling out of the country in earnest ever since the war ended in 1945

    A hilarious portrayal of how wealthy mostly non Egyptian families of Alexandria had a wonderful life during the first half of the twentieth century Written by a westernised Lebanese who was born in Alexandria and directed mainly to western readers this autobiographical novel has only a narrow perspective of how life was in Egypt It is an easy read and a page turner nevertheless
