Product description

Review


Neither starry-eyed nor cynical, Ziada constructs, in exquisitely lyrical language, the story of Bakheet's love for the white woman who finds solace in his company but cannot imagine marrying a slave. A rich and sensitive novel, Longing of the Dervish reflects on tolerance, prejudice and freedom in ways that transcend its historic setting.;--Financial Times


;Explores a seminal moment in the region's history; --The Guardian
