With the news in Egypt we were wondering if there are any fans of Egypt's Nobel 
Literature Prize winner among volunteers who would like to research which of 
his works are in the collection.

If so, let me know. We will want book URL if we  have it or ISBN if we do not 
as with similar collection development projects like this. For those who use 
Google doc spreadsheets this list is available there also.

These are the books in English translation by Egypt's 1988      Nobel 
Literature Prize winner Naguib Marfouz according to the Nobel Foundation 
librarian:


1988            Naguib Marfouz
