In this chapter, published in April 1973, Jacqueline Shohet Kahanoff reviews Beer in the Snooker Club, a novel by Egyptian-Coptic writer Waguih Ghali, and reflects on the relations between Jews and Copts in Egypt. Published in 1964, Beer in the Snooker Club tells the love story of a Copt and a Jew, and shows how Egyptians struggled to hold on to their disappearing cosmopolitan, Levantine world. Copts belong to the Christian minorities that also include Syrians, Lebanese, Armenians, and Greeks, who were sometimes associated with anti-Semitism.

Keywords:   Jacqueline Shohet Kahanoff, Snooker Club, novel, Waguih Ghali, Jews, Copts, Egypt, Christian minorities, anti-Semitism
