English, French, Italian, Arabic, Greek; my father was fluent in all these languages. I never thought much about it–I was too busy coping with my family’s turbulent life ever since we were expelled from Egypt, trying to find a new place we could call “home.” Finally one day, when I had the career, the child, the husband and the house, I felt safe enough to look back and try to understand my Egyptian Jewish roots. So I started to read. And read. And then write.
