Their host is an addict, so dependent that he is in danger of losing his job.One evening they venture out for a drive which ends in tragedy, destroying their easy camaraderie and exposing the frailty of human relationships. In his elegant but economic prose, Mahfouz once again creates - out of the simplest of plots - a telling commentary on human nature.
