The infamous alley of this rich, intricate and formerly banned novel (first published in Arabic in 1959) is inhabited by a modern Egyptian family, but is also the setting of a second, hidden, and more daring story: the spiritual history of mankind. The inhabitants of the Cairene neighborood unwittingly reenact the lives of their holy ancestors.
