"Helps show why postwar Alexandria inspires nostalgia and avidity in seemingly everyone who knew it ...The result is what summer reading should be: fast, carefree, visceral, and incipiently lubricious."-- The New Yorker "Luminous ...One of the great triumphs of Alexandrian Summer is the richness of the evocation of this city and the multiple cultures pressed within it ...A sultry eroticism pervades."-- The Forward "Alexandria, a lush paradise by the sea, comes to antic, full-bodied life ...Gormezano Goren's characters are vividly depicted as they grow up or grow older in a city of conflicting loyalties, riven by resentment, ready to revolt. Readers will be transported."--Publishers Weekly "This novel recalls one gloriously golden summer in a cosmopolitan city on the verge of upheaval ...Fluidly written and soberly enticing."--Library Journal "Engaging and varied ...a refreshing and nuanced portrayal of the Jewish diaspora in Egypt."--The Times Literary Supplement "A gifted writer ...Gormezano Goren defines the city and its ambiance in lush, sensuous terms ...He also describes so well the Diaspora Jew's knack for downplaying the danger of gathering storms of hatred, a tendency not limited to Alexandria or to any particular era of exile. "--The Jerusalem Post "A powerful novel of tensions--sexual, familial, religious, and political--and an affecting but unsparing portrait of the petit bourgeois world of Egyptian Jews standing obliviously on the edge of a precipice. Alexandria---sensual and enchanting---shimmers in these pages." --Dalia Sofer, author of The Septembers of Shiraz "A fine work of art ...riveting from the first page to the last."--Zo Haderekh "A reason to rejoice...You can't help but keep on smiling with great pleasure."--Maariv "A profound literary experience."--Ahshav Alexandrian Summer is the story of two Jewish families living their frenzied last days in the doomed cosmopolitan social whirl of Alexandria just before fleeing Egypt for Israel
