Recently installed in Cairo as a freelance journalist and expat barfly, Hugh Miles soon meets and falls in love with Roda, a beautiful Egyptian doctor, who introduces him to Egypt's favourite pastime, the card game tarneeb, to her all-female card circle, and to a previously unseen side of life in the Middle East's greatest city. While the women cut and shuffle, Miles listens to their stories and learns about what it means to be a young Muslim woman, dating, dieting and divorcing in a country where traditional Islamic values are in the ascendant. Yosra struggles with an addiction to prescription drugs; Nadia copes with a baby and an abusive husband; neighbour Reem comes to terms with plastic surgery gone wrong; while her sister attempts to conceal her secret love-marriage from her family and to breathe life into a clothes shop run by a regime apparatchik with an Islamist vision of retail. Hugh Miles takes a fascinating sideways look at the lives of young Egyptians, and finds himself on a romantic adventure that will lead him to Islam and bind him to the Arab world for ever

Big Bill : the story of a heron( Visual )

1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Summary: The grey heron is one of Europe's largest birds and in many respects one of its most attractive ones. It is estimated that in England and Wales there are some 25,000 herons, including about 5,000 pairs, and this film from the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds tells the story of one of them. It starts with the coming together of the parents, depicting the building of the nest, the mating and the incubation of the eggs, and then follows the young bird's progress from birth to maturity. In the process it illustrates and discusses many aspects of the heron's behaviour, including its effective fishing technique. The film points out that the bird's only enemy is man, in particular the way he has polluted the environment. Awards: American Film Festival, New York (short version)
