Alexandria.0

El rastro de la momia de Alejandro Magno se perdió hace siglos, pero su búsqueda obsesiona a Blanca Gallego, convencida de que será capaz de hallar la que ella considera la reliquia más preciada de la Historia. Los Padres brindarán ayuda a Blanca, quizá porque saben que el verdadero tesoro es ella, la única persona con el don de volver a pasear…

Blending aspects of memoir, history, and travel narrative into an elegant and unique tapestry, Stothard uses the sights and sounds of the ancient city to reconnect with the experiences that shaped his life. Melancholy yet often humorous, Alexandria probingly deconstructs the enigma of modern Egypt—with its uneasy mix of classical touchstones and increasingly volatile Middle Eastern politics—and offers a first–hand glimpse into the fracturing state just before the Tahrir Square uprising and the start of the Arab Spring.
