Abstract. In the article, the analysis of the novel "Being Abbas al-Abd" by the Egyptian writer Ahmed Alaidy is presented. It is concluded that this novel is a chronicle of the madness of a young Egyptian, and at the same time, a cry of the generation of the end of the XX - the beginning of the XXI century, who were born after the defeat of the Arabs by Israel in the Six-Day War in 1967. The tangle of distressing reality and painful fantasies causes the uncommunicativeness and alienation of Abbas al-Abd and leads to the insane actions of the young man. Sharing with the novel’s hero his madness, dividing his depression into pieces, the writer achieves the fact that the reader has a positive psychotherapeutic effect.
