A Naughty Boy Called Antar  Mohamed Tawfik's new novel Dar Miret September 2003

The book is available in Arabic only.
For readers in English  we recommend 
The Day the Moon Fell and Offshoots VI 

A Naughty boy called Antar

While employing the genre of a fast moving thriller, the author attempts to uncover the intricate dilemmas of Egyptian society. He deploys an original structure with multiple layers and plot lines and does not shy from mixing genres. The end product blends social satire with metaphysics, political analysis with suspense, comedy with intellectual stimulation.
