Naguib Mahfouz (Egyptian: 1911 – 2006) was an Egyptian writer who won the 1988 Nobel Prize for Literature. He is regarded as one of the first contemporary writers of Arabic literature to explore themes of existentialism. He published 34 novels and hundreds of other works over a 70-year career. Many of his works have been made into foreign films.

THE HARAFISH comprises a series of episodes about several generations of an Egyptian family from the urban rabble (the "harafish"). Many members of this family become clan chiefs in an alley in the city; some of them become benefactors to the other harafish; others are more corrupt.--Wiki

First published in Arabic in 1977.
