Other Titles

Abstract

This file contains the sixth and final diary notebook composed by Waguih Ghali, beginning on 29 January 1968. The transcript of his BBC radio broadcast about his visit to Israel is published in The Listener in January 1968. Ghali writes about public speaking engagements as an Egyptian who visited Israel, and the people he meets as a result. His political musings in these pages also include reflections on the Vietnam War. Ghali continues to reside in London, but returns to Dusseldorf for a visit and stops in Paris. Entries suggest that Ghali was attempting to write fiction during this period—he mentions working on what he calls the “Ashl novel” and a short story. The chilling final entry on 26 December 1968 is composed after Ghali had swallowed the pills that ultimately kill him. This diary is dated 1968 January 29 - 1968 December 26.
