Actually, it sounds like a bad copy of Naguib Mahfouz's Cairo Trilogy Tom Send a noteboard - 18/09/2012 09:06:40 PM
I mean down to the details about the characters. I obviously can't say much definitively, not having read the book (and honestly, I really don't have much desire to, either, based on the synopsis), but from what you've posted it really sounds like a bad copy of the Cairo Trilogy, written by Nobel laureate Naguib Mahfouz.
Political correctness is the pettiest form of casuistry.

ἡ δὲ κἀκ τριῶν τρυπημάτων ἐργαζομένη ἐνεκάλει τῇ φύσει, δυσφορουμένη, ὅτι δὴ μὴ καὶ τοὺς τιτθοὺς αὐτῇ εὐρύτερον ἢ νῦν εἰσι τρυπώη, ὅπως καὶ ἄλλην ἐνταῦθα μίξιν ἐπιτεχνᾶσθαι δυνατὴ εἴη. – Procopius

Ummaka qinnassa nīk!

Mahfouz tackles almost all those "taboos". - 18/09/2012 11:20:59 PM 695 Views
