entitled “The lawsuit” by Naguib Mahfouz

The lawsuit

I found myself suddenly the subject of

maintenance. Awakened from the depths of
time, the past with its memories had invaded
me. After reading the petition, I exclaimed,
“When did she go broke? Has she in her turn
been robbed?”

This woman robbed us and deprived us of our

legal rights,” I said to my lawyer.
I felt a strong desire to see her, not
through any temptation to gloat over her
but in order to see what effects time had
had upon her. Today, like me, she was in her
forties. Had her beauty withstood the passage of
time? Was it holding out against poverty? If the
lawsuit was not genuine, would she have
stretched out a demanding hand to one of her

On the other hand, if it was specious, why had

she not stretched out her hand before? What a
ravishing beauty she had been!

My father married her, “I told the lawyer, “when

he was in his middle fifties and she a girl of
twenty.” A semiliterate, old-fashioned contractor,
he did not deal a lawsuit.

My father’s widow was demanding with banks

but stored his profits away in a large cupboard in
his bedroom. We were happy about this so long
as we were a single family. The announcement
of the new marriage was like a bomb exploding
among us-my mother, my elder brother, and
myself, as well as my sister in their various
homes. The top floor was given over to my
father, the bride , and the cupboard. We were
struck dumb by her youth and beauty. My
mother said in a quavering voice choked with
weaping. “what a catastrophe! We’ll end up
without a bean.”
