Cairenes make for a tough crowd: angry, melancholic, humorous and divided. You won’t find a sign on the door. You’ll have to figure out for yourself where to knock. This book is about that: knowing where to knock. Our editors Heba Habib and Isabelle Mayault have selected contributors who will take you to hang out with TV stars in downtown hidden hang-outs, play taowla in an outdoor cafe until the wee hours, teach us the difference between an oud and a saaz, talk to a Sufi sheikh and reminisce over the time when girls wore skirts and movie stars were equal to Gods.
