درباره کتاب An Egyptian Journal :
A first-hand journal about the Goldings’ travels through Egypt, soon after winning the Nobel Prize, living on a motor cruiser on the Nile. Nothing went quite as planned, but William Golding’s vivid and honest account of what actually happened, and of what he saw and felt about ancient Egypt and the exasperations of the living present, will delight his innumerable admirers and everyone who visits Egypt.’One of the funniest anti-travel books I have ever read.’ Daily Telegraph ‘No previous book brings you so close to Golding the man. It bulges with abstruse knowledge . . . and is often screamingly funny . . . Hugely enjoyable.’ The Times
“An Egyptian Journal” is a non-fiction travelogue written by Nobel Prize-winning author William Golding. The book is based on Golding’s visit to Egypt in 1985 and is a record of his experiences and observations.
Throughout the book, Golding describes his interactions with the people he meets, his visits to various historical sites, and his observations of the social and political conditions in Egypt. He discusses his own feelings of alienation and disorientation in a country that is both fascinating and challenging.
Golding’s prose is introspective and often poetic, with a focus on his own emotional reactions to the places he visits. He also touches on broader issues such as the relationship between Egypt and the West, and the challenges facing the country in the wake of its history and its recent political developments.
Overall, “An Egyptian Journal” is a deeply personal account of a writer’s encounter with a foreign culture, and an exploration of the complex relationship between history, politics, and human experience.
