Rabih Alameddine recommends
The Last Watchman of Old Cairo (2018)
Michael David Lukas
"A beautiful, richly textured novel, ambitious and delicately crafted, The Last Watchman of Old Cairo is both a coming-of-age story and a family history, a wide-ranging book about fathers and sons, religion, magic, love, and the essence of storytelling. This book is a joy."
