Costruito negli anni trenta da un miliardario armeno, Palazzo Yacoubian contiene in sé tutto ciò che l'Egitto era ed è diventato da quando l'edificio è sorto in uno dei viali del centro. Dal devoto e ortodosso figlio del portiere, che vuole entrare in polizia ma che finirà invece a ingrossare le già folte milizie islamiste, alla sua fidanzata, vittima delle angherie dei padroni; dai poveri che vivono sul tetto dell'edificio e sognano una vita più agiata al gaudente signore aristocratico poco timorato di Dio e nostalgico dei tempi di re Faruk che indulge in piaceri assolutamente terreni; dall'intellettuale gay con la passione per gli uomini nubiani, che vive i suoi amori proibiti neanche troppo clandestinamente, all'uomo d'affari senza scrupoli del pianterreno che vuole entrare in politica…

Cairo: a 70-year-old building of once-luxury flats with tenements on the roof. Zika, an aging libertine, feuds with his sister. Pius Haj Azzam takes a second wife, in secret, to satisfy sexual drive within religious bounds. Bothayna, poor and beautiful, supports her family, wanting to do so with dignity intact. Her former fiancé, Taha, the janitor's son, humiliated by the police, turns to fundamentalism. Hatem, a gay editor, seduces and corrupts a young man from the sticks. Two brothers, Copts, one a tailor and one Zika's factotum, connive for property. Allah is on most everyone's lips, and corruption is in their hearts. European values, both refined and worldly, provide a subtext.

A once elegant, now shabby Cairo high-rise harbors its residents’ secret needs in a move that criss-crosses between a myriad of plot lines that deal with such traditionally taboo subjects as homosexuality, fundamentalism, corruption and prostitution. The most expensive film in Egyptian history, this juicy epic runs the gamut of the social spectrum.

Al-Aswani 'Ala - Cairo Automobile Club
Feltrinelli | 2014| EPUB | Pages 488 | ISBN: 8807031078 | 2 MB

In questo splendido libro scopriamo gli ultimi sussulti dell’Egitto pre-nasseriano: l’arroganza delle classi dominanti, la miseria dei reietti, il risveglio del sentimento nazionalistico. L’edificio si crepa ovunque, e nel microcosmo del Cairo Automobile Club, dove il volto nero come il carbone di un domestico aggiunge un tocco di eleganza al decoro, fremono i tempi futuri e l’esplosione rivoluzionaria che infiammerà il paese.
Più che mai impegnato e umanista, ‘Ala al-Aswani riprende i racconti popolari e i colori sgargianti dell’irresistibile Palazzo Yacoubian e indica instancabilmente l’unica via giusta per il suo paese: una democrazia egiziana da costruire.
