Detailed information

FROM THE INTERNATIONALLY BESTSELLING AUTHOR

'[A] mesmerizing portrait of a now vanished world.' NEW YORK TIMES
'A dazzling evocation of a time and a place.' TELEGRAPH
'Aciman. . . recalls with a magical sensibility streaked with antic humoUr.' PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

Aciman's story of Alexandria is the story of his own family, a Jewish family with Italian and Turkish roots that tied its future to Egypt and made its home there for three generations, only to find itself peremptorily expelled by the government in the early 1960s. It is the story of a fractious clan of dreamers and con men and the emotional price they would pay for exile, the story of a young boy's coming of age and his memories of the city he loved in his youth.
