Set against the background of what was then the world?s most cosmopolitan city, ?Memories of Alexandria? tells the story of a Spanish-Egyptian family, from the years immediately after the Spanish Civil War to Egypt?s decades of revolution, unrest and conflict between the late forties and the mid-sixties. The storyline runs incessantly back and forth, embracing, like a lively journey, past present and future, portraying historical accounts and people from all walks of life with a philosophical and cynical approach to the scheming and false values of our time ? and the uselessness of it all. It is also the story of the ?uprooted?, those Egyptian khawagat (foreigners) who after revolution and wars, were forced out of the country by unforeseen and tragic circumstances. The writing is sincere, cynical, ironic, candid, spicy, harsh, bold and desperate. In a nutshell, ?Memories of Alexandria ? From a void to nothingness ? is a surrealistic philosophical story of bygone times. Ricardo Wahby Tapia is now retired after forty years in business, mainly in the tourist industry. He lives in Madrid and Cabezón de la Sal (Cantabria)
