    The title in the original French is Mendiants et orgueilleux, literally Beggars and Proud People Cossery explained that it came from an Arabic saying, precisely translated as a beggar who sets his own conditions So, welcome to Egyptian squalor, a place of drugs and beggars and prostitutes It is a place completely foreign to us Westerners A place where a government worker is oxymoronic, where classes are strictly defined, where women are objectified Okay,...

    I often wonder about sentences about their impact, their purity, their necessity of being I wonder about wasted words, wasted pages, and wasted stories I wonder every time I read.Yet, whenever I reach for The Proud Beggars, I find myself in awe, mesmerized, a captive to Cossery s mastery of language, his scenes, his characters, and his ideology If there ever was the perfect literary book, for me, it is this one.No matter how many times I read this book, it never fails to grab me anew and br I often wonder about sentences about their impact, their purity, their necessity of being I wonder about wasted words, wasted pages, and wasted stories I wonder every time I read.Yet, whenever I reach for The Proud Beggars, I find myself in awe, mesmerized, a captive to Cossery s mastery of language, his scenes, his characters, and his ideology If there ever was the perfect literary book, for me, it is this one.No matter how many times I read this book, it never fails to grab me anew and bring me to my knees.Through his easy flowing, imagery rich writing, Cossery breathes life into his main characters Gohar, a wealthy, respected philosophy professor, who leaves everything to become a beggar Yeghen, a hideous derelict poet, who values friendship above his own life El Kordi, a government clerk, who is too occupied wit...

    Proud Beggars is an exquisite meditation on dignity, not just another Egyptian noir though there isn t anything bad about that Neither is this a tale of the Junkie Raskolnikov in the Medina, which is what the plot suggests initially The narrative involves a trio of friends in a seedy district of Cairo, each singular in his trials and ambitions A crime is committed and such alerts the presence of a conflicted police detective What follows is remarkable There a re a pair of scenes which exp Proud Beggars is an exquisite meditation on dignity, not ...

    Albert Cossery is a very peculiar guy He lived most of his life in a small room in a Paris hotel, sixty years or so, where he was found dead He isn t a novelist , as he says, but rather an author with one simple clear idea in mind He writes so that his readers stop going to work, and he is not fond of writing too much, because one doesn t need to write many books to convey an idea Quite true I like this man because he is authentic, humble, and hence very aristocratic He is the Albert Cossery is a very peculiar guy He ...

    I didn t intend the first book of 2017 to be such a short book, but this is the one that fell in my lap first Unfortunately this is one of those examples of books where it s meant to be humorous and I m always iffy on those sorts of books because I m a rat bastard that has no sense of humor But, it s a short book, so I figured it wouldn t matter too much if I got the humor or not.Well, it must, because this book didn t do much for me.The story begins with a murder in a Cairo brothel What s I didn t intend the first book of 2017 to be such a short book, but this is the one that fell in my lap first Unfortunately this is one of those examples of books where it s meant to be humorous and I m always iffy on those sorts of books because I m a rat bastard that has no sense of humor But, it s a short book, so I figured it wouldn t matter too much if I got the humor or not.Well, it must, because this book didn t do much for me.The story begins with a murder in a Cairo brothel What s interesting about this book is we the reader know right off just who did this and why The rest of the book involves the police investigator, Nour El Dine, figuring out who committed the act There are three suspects Gohar, a once professor who now is an accountant in a whorehouse Yeghen, a drug dea...

    A short novel, but it is one that does make you stop and ponder Whilst I could not really enjoy the main characters I could appreciate the vein in which this shorter novel is written in I would have no doubt rated the novel high...

    I read this book a while ago and I still don t think I can give a adequate review I don t know what to say or where to start The story revolves around 3 men leading impoverished lives by choice, but who are living in contentment without the necessity of materialistic ideals subjected upon them by the world around them From the very beginning I loved the characters, even though they are drug addicts who seem to reject any kind of ambition. you really can t help but ...
