A collector's item.

I would not normally review my own translation, but I have to correct the impression given in the review by A Customer: the novel is set on the edge of Cairo, not in India, and it reflects on the three Western monotheistic religions and not at all on those of India, China, etcetera. The first four heroes relive the lives of Adam, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad respectively, and the fifth hero represents modern science and technology. I give it only 4 stars, because the translation needed to be revised - and was, as Children of Gebelaawi. However, it is a collector's item as only 6,000 copies were published by Henemann Educational Books and 2,000 by Three Continents Press.
