straight-up MUST if you ever intend to live in or even visit this CITY VICTORIOUS. It reads so easily and somehow Rodenbeck manages to teach you a thing or two about Mamluk torture practices and Fatimid burials. If you love Cairo, you'll love it, and if you're disillusioned with Cairo, you'll gain a re-appreciation for this magical place (if you hate Cairo, then GTFO).
