The book was made into a film of the same name in and into a TV series in The locale of the novel is downtown Cairo , with the titular apartment building which actually exists serving as both a metaphor for contemporary Egypt and a unifying location in which most of the primary characters either live or work and in which much of the novel's action takes place. The author, a dentist by profession, had his first office in the Yacoubian Building in Cairo. It has been translated into 23 languages. The actual namesake building, constructed in the Art Deco style, still stands in downtown Cairo at the address given in the novel: 34, Talaat Harb Street referred to by its old name, Suleiman Pasha Street, by both native Cairenes and the novel's characters , although its true appearance differs from its description in the book.

She had practicality and perseverance despite her setbacks. She accepted her responsibility to take care of her family despite the small ability she had as a woman to provide for them.
She was annoyed by Taha's unwillingness to accept life as it was, and she recognized love when it came, no matter how strange a place it came from. I had sympathy for Taha in the beginning but his inability to accept and adapt is an annoying quality found in many men who put pride before life, where women most often shoulder the burden and keep on going.
