Alaa al Aswany, author of The Yacoubian Building, “speaks with Margret Warner about the surprising changes in political behavior of his countrymen amid the revolution earlier this year, and how the new Egypt is taking shape.”

I was really inspired. I — sometimes, during the revolution, I had my doubs that that was real, or I am living a dream? Are people — the Egyptians with whom I lived this revolution are very different from the Egyptians I used to live with before. They have this — they have only the same faces. — Alaa Al Aswany
