Albert Cossery

Albert Cossery (1913-2008), the Voltaire of the Nile, wrote eight books about the life of the common people in his native Egypt and was first published in the 1940s by New Directions. His work is both a celebration and a lament: as he put it, So much beauty in this world and so few eyes to see it.
