Ahdaf Soueif – novelist, commentator, activist – takes us on a journey through her city, narrating her history of Cairo and her journey through the Revolution that is altering its future. Through a map of stories drawn from private history and public record Soueif charts a story of the Revolution that is both intimately hers and publicly Egyptian.
Ahdaf Soueif was born and brought up in Cairo. When the Egyptian Revolution of 2011 erupted on January 25th, she, along with thousands of others, called Tahrir Square home for eighteen days. This is her story.
