Book Review: Daughter Faten (الابنة فاتن) by Nai'm Sabry

A good novel, written in clean, spare prose. The plot, about the life of Faten Farouk, a woman who has an absentee father, and how her relationship with him affects her emotionally and psychologically, is masterfully paced. Author Na'im Sabry (The Waves of Autumn) proves once again that he is a master of the Egyptian psycho-sexual novel. Reminiscent of the works of Ihsan Abdel Qodous and Youssef El Seba’y.
