Life, Death, and Community in Cairo's City of the Dead


THE CITY OF THE DEAD is a mysterious area of Cairo that many Egyptians are aware of but not intimately connected too. This book provides a historical evolution of a residential cemetery more than four centuries old. Beneath a modern multilane highway lies a vast intricately connected ancient necropolis that stretches over three kilometres.

Emilia's Emancipation

[Siren Classic: Erotic Paranormal RomanceInterracialMay-December] Twice burnedthree times shy Emilia Vega hasn't dipped her toes into the dating waters since her last and only post-divorce relationship ended badly. Her self-imposed celibacyhoweverbecomes an unviable option when she's thrust into the arms of transplanted Argentinean dance…

The primary focus of the book is to analyze, understand, and to share the unique history and culture of this hidden, yet dynamic city with the outside world. It is here that life and death reconcile under the amazingly interesting stories of the lives shared by its community members. From the Majestic Citadel to the wonderfully designed grave tombs of unknown mystic saints, this book expresses the historical and cultural voice of this indomitable city which never stops reinventing itself. This panoramic story of a city that oscillates between the sacred and the profane- ancient tombs coalesce with chaotic markets- blends the personal touch of first hand travel with the in depth provocation of history. It is a sweeping, lucid work.
