? وقد ترك حياة الليل، يقرر عبد الجواد العودة إلى منزل زبيدة العالمة ويفاجأ بأن طفلة الأمس زنوبة قد كبرت وأصبحت فتاة توقع زنوبة السيد عبد الجواد فى حبها وتقنعه بشراء عوامة لها، ولكنها فى نفس الوقت تحب ياسين ابنه دون ان تعرف حقيقة ا?. Opening some years after Palace Walk this second book charts the loosening of patriarchal control in the central family even as Egypt has nominally been given independence though the British are still in control behind the scenes The focus is mainly on the men of the family Khadija and Aisha are both married with children and play only small roles though it s striking that Khadija seems to have inherited her father s will to control in her household there are some lovely comic scenes around her clashes with her mother in lawDesire is central and works as a chaotic force as Ahmad returns to his socialising Yasin manages to get through a couple marriages and Kamal now 17 falls in love The latter strand is particularly reminiscent of Proust bringing together issues of love memory and writingThe waning powers of Ahmad become ever poignant as he ages his grandchildren feel none of the respect and fear his own children had Kamal asserts his own will over choice of study and career and Ahmad is increasingly overshadowed by Yasin whose potency grows as that of his father retreats There s less of overt Egyptian politics than in the first book but I feel that this strand will emerge strongly in the final part of the trilogy

?صلة بينهما وتتزوجه بعد أن تهجر السيد أحمد وتدخل أسرتهم كزوجة محترمة لابنه أما كمال، فيحب عايدة أخت صديقه لكنها ترفض الزواج منه وتتركه يكفر بالمبادئ والمثل التى لطالما آمن بها، بعد أن تعايره بفقره وتتزوج من أحد أصدقائهم الأثرياء. The second of the Cairo Trilogy picks up around 7 years after the end of Palace Walk review herein 1924 The Al Jawad family is moving on from the death of Fahmy and the ageing patriarch Ahmad is slowly losing control over his family as they move into adulthoodThese books are named for the street where the action mostly occurs book one for the family home on Palace Walk this book is named for the house of Yasin on Palace of Desire Alley The third book is named for Sugar Street where the families of Khadija and Aisha liveThis book largely focusses on the three male members of the family Ahmad the hidden and hedonistic lifestyle having to slow with his age also being discovered slowly by his sons eldest Yasin who furthers his pursuit marriage and divorce cycle and youngest Kamal the young scholar who is in pursuit of his beloved Aida seeking to determine his career choices and growing from boy to man The central plot themed by the fact that each of these men make fools of themselves in their pursuit of women who were not good for them I have tried not to illustrate the plot than general themes as there is no reason to spoil it for future readersThere is enough side story and background to keep us up to date with the progress of Khadija and Aisha who are both married and have children and the ever subservient Amina trying to keep her family together and at peaceThe writing style changes a little from Palace Walk in that the uick fire short chapters I enjoyed so much swapping from character to character are gone The chapters are longer and sometime subseuent chapters stick with the same character With Kamal in particular we are subjected on purpose to demonstrate his torment to his long torturous inner monologues on his unreuited love his religious thoughts and his changed philosophical viewpoint These changes make this book a little less readable for me interrupted as my reading time often is by an 8 month old baby competing for my attentionsupervisionAs with the first book there are dramatic events left open in the last few pages to whet the appetite for Overall I still really enjoyed the second in this trilogy and I look forward to getting to the third Four stars for me the same as Palace Walk although perhaps that should have been five stars as it is still slightly superior to this one
