Alaa Al-aswany

Egyptian novelist Al-aswany's second novel, Chicago (2007) was 'partly inspired by his stay in the United States as a graduate student during the late 1980s' (Jacuemond, 2008: 245). Including a representation of Egyptians studying abroad, Chicago is worthwhile reading and examining.
