Summary On the death of her husband, the great Egyptian writer Taha Hussein, Suzanne Taha Hussein, who at the time was eighty years old, began to write her memoirs. The Arabic translation Ma'ak was brought out a few years ago by the al-Ma'arif publishing house, and Editions Cerf have now published the original French-language text under the title Avec toi. With an added preface by her daughter Amina Taha Hussein, the volume tells the story of the encounter between two individuals whose destinies ought never to have crossed, let alone joined together to pursue patiently and faithfully such a long shared trajectory. It was a journey rich in joys but also bristling with difficulties. Two spouses who had nothing in common but they shared everything, united as they were by their mutual affection and by an unconditional love for Egypt.
