Set in Alexandria, this classic and much-loved memoir chronicles the exploits of Andre Aciman's colourful Sephardic Jewish family from its arrival in Egypt at the turn of the century to its forced departure three generations later. Aciman tells a story of childhood innocence, of intricate family life and the pain of exile from a place one loves. His memories are adorned with eccentric characters: mysterious Uncle Vili - soldier, salesman, Italian Fascist and British spy; the two grandmothers, the Princess and the Saint, who gossip in six different languages; his melancholy Aunt Flora who warns that Jews lose everything 'at least twice in their lives'; and his father, who considers converting to Islam in order to stay in Alexandria. Elegant, beautifully-written, moving and witty, "Out of Egypt" bridges cultures and generations and provides a moving portrait of a by-gone world.

Like The Cross-Legged Scribe he de­scribes so vividly, Ihab Hassan lives under Medu-netcher, the sign of the word. For Hassan, a critic is far more than a conservator or maker of judgments. In his work he has investigated not only the state of current literature but the thoughts and feelings that inform it. ?The important questions before the human race are not literary questions,” he acknowledges in Paracriticisms (1975). ?They are questions of consciousness? reason, dream, love.” If humanity, as Hassan's work progressively suggests, is being transformed by a new universal consciousness, it is appropriate, perhaps essential, that critics such as he examine their own evolution as thinking and feeling beings. Out of Egypt, Hassan has never returned, preferring instead the continuing journey: ?In journeys, we hear the cadences of the uni­verse itself, and endure our death, going hence, coming hither. ?Ripe­ness is all.'” The process of ?ripen­ing” is dependent in this inter-textual age upon the blending of minds into minds, voices into voices, making it necessary for Hassan to weave into his nar­rative brief essays, citations, and quotations?including some from his previous work.

Coming Out of Egypt is an exodus out of idolatryÑthe idolatry of ancient Egypt and the idolatry that permeates the church today. Its goal is to make the exodus come alive for the readerÑnot to just read about the exodus but to experience the exodus, not to just read about the Passover but to experience the Passover, to catapult the reader back through time like a time traveler entering a time portal. The goal of Coming Out of Egypt is to experience redemption, not just to read about redemption, to experience redemption from Pharaoh at the Reed Sea, and witness Yeshua's resurrection.

Pesach (Passover) is the sacred holiday where the Jewish people retell the story of their ancestral flight out of Egypt. Each year they celebrate their journey from bondage to freedom. Each person identifies with the story as though they, themselves were oppressed slaves under the wrath of Pharaoh. One of the most fundamental truths about life is that everyone experiences their own Egypt. People have a choice to live under the tyranny of Pharaoh or experience an exodus and travel to a land flowing with milk and honey. Based on a true story, this is the retelling of one woman’s escape from Egypt. Adira Bat Avraham shares her incredible journey that led her to a place of personal and spiritual freedom. Adira is an exceptionally strong woman who struggled through unbelievable circumstances. She overcame incredible odds to achieve freedom for herself and her for her family. Along the way, she learns to validate her own voice and cries for justice. Adira’s inspirational story is about healing, deliverance, redemption, and finding hope.

'[A] mesmerizing portrait of a now vanished world. Aciman's story of Alexandria is the story of his own family, a Jewish family with Italian and Turkish roots that tied its future to Egypt and made its home there for three generations, only to find itself peremptorily expelled by the Government in the early 1960's. It is the story of a fractious clan of dreamers and con men and the emotional price they would pay for exile, the story of a young boy's coming of age and his memories of the city he loved in his youth. Writing in lucid, lyrical prose, Mr. Aciman does an exquisite job of conjuring up the daily rhythms and rituals of his family's life: their weekly trips to the movies, their daily jaunts to the beach, their internecine squabbles over everything from religion to money to the pronunciation of words. There are some wonderfully vivid scenes here, as strange and marvelous as something in Garcia Marquez, as comical and surprising as something in Chekhov.' Michiko Kakutani, New York Times
