This is a single-volume version of the three-part biography of one of modern Egypt's greatest thinkers and writers. Part one is entitled "An Egyptian Childhood", it tells of Taha Hussein's early childhood and education in a small village in Upper Egypt, as he learns not only to come to terms with his blindness but to excel in spite of it. Part two, entitled "The Stream of Days: A Student at the Azhar", is a picture of student life in Egypt in the early 1900s. Part three is entitled "A Passage To France", it carries on the story to Hussein's final attainment of a doctorate at the Sorbonne, a saga of perseverance in the face of daunting odds.
