Autumn Quail - Naguib Mahfouz, نجيب محفوظ, John Rodenbeck, Roger Allen Mahfouz lures you in to this story with the most amazing description of the Cairo Fires. You see it through Isa, a very senior civil servant, who has returned to Cairo soon after they have started and walks through the city, shocked. He can't believe what is happening, even as it does. His staid denial is amazing, walking through the madness and destruction.
