Today I think about Egypt. Miramar... I have red this book at least 5 times. The main character of that novel is Zohra. The cover page is illustrated by Gotting. It pictures a mysterious young lady with a perfect oval. I wonder who she is.
Back to Egypt. i know little about it but enough to be an eternal admirer of the writer Naguib Mahfouz and the singer Oum Kalthoum. They have both made of love, el houb, the main theme of their work, either in song, or in writing.
