Winner of the Sami Rohr Prize for Jewish Literature  this  captivating account of the author’s family's life in cosmopolitan Cairo and painful relocation to America, hinges on her father, who cut a dashing figure in mid-century Cairo, consorting with British officers and Egyptian royalty at French cafés, until the family is forced to flee, first to Paris and then the New York, where they arrive with only $212, the maximum they were allowed to take out of Egypt.
