"Maalouf is a master storyteller" (David Robinson Sunday Telegraph)
"A simple and touching love story...limpid and delicate in the telling" (Times Literary Supplement)
"A beautiful work of fiction" (Pierre Robert Leclerco Le Monde)
"Maalouf's novels recreate the thrill of childhood reading, that primitive mixture of learning about something unknown or unimagined and forgetting utterly about oneself. His is a voice which Europe cannot afford to ignore" (Claire Messud Guardian)
A love story set against the backdrop of war that deals with conflicts between father and son, past and present, as well as the political tensions of twentieth century Europe.See all Product description

Ports of call is a love story of Ossyane, an ottoman muslim by blood, born in Beirut and Clara a jew both of them meet in France in second world war days at a comrades home and this single meeting becomes a cornerstone for their marriage which takes place much later, they live together for a very brief period and then live for decades with new drawn boundaries between them, to meet again only. I read this novel continuously to complete it but then at last ten pages I left it for one more day because I did not want to finish this beautiful story so quickly.
It is one more very well written novel by Amin Maalouf.
A sort of Ottoman Levant War and Peace bringing in the end of the Turkish Empire, Lebanon and mandatory Palestine.
A fascinating and wonderful book.
