In this beguiling new novel, initially released in 1985 and now showing for the 1st time within the usa, Mahfouz tells with outstanding perception the tale of the "heretic pharaoh," or "sun king,"--and the 1st recognized monotheistic ruler--whose iconoclastic and arguable reign throughout the 18th Dynasty (1540-1307 B.C.) has uncanny resonance with smooth sensibilities.   Narrating the unconventional is a tender guy with a keenness for the reality, who questions the pharaoh's contemporaries after his terrible death--including Akhenaten's closest neighbors, his so much sour enemies, and at last his enigmatic spouse, Nefertiti--in an attempt to find what quite occurred in these unusual, darkish days at Akhenaten's court.  As our narrator and every of the topics he interviews give a contribution their model of Akhenaten, "the truth" turns into more and more evanescent.  Akhenaten encompasses the entire contradictions his matters see in him: instantaneously merciless and empathic, female and barbaric, mad and divinely encouraged, his personality, as Mahfouz imagines him, is eerily smooth, and fascinatingly ethereal.  An formidable and enormously lucid and obtainable ebook, Akhenaten is a piece in simple terms Mahfouz may well render so elegantly, so irresistibly.
