|Ibrahim Aslan "1935-2012"|
I will not claim that I have read anything for Aslan before , I know that Nile Sparrows novel was his novel and it was translated to different language and was highly received yet I have respected the man so much for his actions during the Mubarak era when he refused state awards in clear rare defiance to that regime in its powerful times.

May Allah bless Aslan.
Here is his official website by Shorouk publication house. Here is also a wonderful piece written by our mysterious Baheyya blogger about the Art of Ibrahim Aslan.
By the way in 2011 I have not been able to read book to the end , hopefully I will be able to do it in 2012 insh Allah.
