Bahaa Taher nakedan masrah'eyan (Bahaa Taher a Theatre Critic) introduced by Shabaan Youssef, Cairo: General Egyptian Book Organization, 2012.

A new book prepared and introduced by poet Shaaban Youssef presents a little-known side of the Arabic Booker Laureate, Bahaa Taher.

The book contains his early theatre criticism and radio plays from the 1960s. There are also reviews by Taher that will be a valuable resource for any researcher trying to understand the era.

The book isn't intended just to share an aspect of Taher's life, but to present an honest and living testimony on an era of rich contribution to Egyptian cultural life, and reflects the broad knowledge of the great Egyptian author as well as the role he played in the theatre.
