Laziness in the Fertile Valley

Albert Cossery


A portrait of a kinfolk of proud layabouts who steer clear of paintings and sleep all day via the Egyptian author also known as "the Voltaire of the Nile"

Laziness within the Fertile Valley is Albert Cossery’s biting social satire a few father, his 3 sons, and their uncle ― slackers all and sundry. One brother has been drowsing for nearly seven years, waking purely to take advantage of the lavatory and devour a meal. one other savagely defends the loved ones from ladies. Serag, the youngest, is the single family member drawn to getting a role. yet even he ― try out as he may ― has a difficult time resisting the decision of laziness.
