Get ready to add a new book to the Chicago literary canon: Chicago by Alaa Al Aswany, who is not the only Chicago-trained dentist to have written a best-selling novel about the Middle East. It's not due in the states until October, but Financial Times has a review. (h/t ptb)

Update: Time has an extensive review.
