    الدكتورة سماح سليم التى درست فى جامعة كولومبيا بنيويورك ، تقدم هنا دراسة تحليلية عن الريف فى الرواية المصرية خلال قرن من الزمان .
    وهى تركز على الفلاح وصورته فى أنواع السرد القصصى التى سادت فى ذلك الوقت
    والكتاب ذو صفة أكاديمية وتناول معظم الروايات والقصص المعروفة مثل زينب وعذراء دنشواى وتصل فى تحليلها الى المحدثين مثل يحيى حقى وشوقى عبد الحكيم ، وبالطبع الدكتور طه حسين .
    وقد تم تقديم الكتاب منذ فترة طويلة للترجمة الى العربية ضمن منشورات مركز الترجمة القومى ، ولا أعرف لماذا تأخر نشره حتى الآن رغم أهميته الكبيرة .
