One of several sitting rooms in Kamal Amin’s hillside retreat in Fountain Hills, AZ
Raised in a home in Cairo, Egypt that was of such immense proportions there were bicycles on each floor to better facilitate the job of getting from one end to the other, I met Kamal as he was ending more than a decade of living in a tent in the Arizona desert. That was 1977. A few years later he built the home which he is now leaving for someone new to enjoy.
Kamal began a new career a few years ago as a writer with three books to his credit. The first was REFLECTIONS FROM THE SHINING BROW, My Years with Frank Lloyd Wright and Olgivanna Lazovich. For a year or so before this first book was published, Kamal and I took weekly desert walks among the cactus littered sands north of his home and we talked. Though unknown to each of us we were bouncing ideas off each other which would soon turn up in our writings. A year or so after the release of this popular page-turner Kamal Amin compiled a collection of essays entitle EXCURSIONS. More recently he gave us Women of the Nile. dedicated “To the Goddess Who Resides in Woman’s Soul and Infuses Her With the Energy Which Saves Us All”.
I hope this last book becomes a movie in Kamal’s lifetime. I’ve read it four times, one time aloud. Yes, I was reading to myself, aloud. That’s another story. be patient, please.
