Cairo Literary Atlas

Ahram Online notes the appearance of a Cairo Atlas of Literature (Literary Atlas of Cairo might be a moreprecise translation of the Arabic title), celebrating the topography of the city in literary excerpts. Sight unseen, it sounds like a great idea.

UPDATE: A commenter notes an English edition appeared in 2010 and is available from AUC
