9781461112938: Clay, Fire and the Potter

Sultan Valad, son of the Sufi poet Rumi, is given three notebooks found in the room of recently deceased mute servant Ayesha. Valad immediately recognizes them as containing valuable information about his father and stepmother Kerra, whom he knows took a special interest in Ayesha. As he reads, he finds out that Ayesha and his stepmother had extraordinary stories to tell. Not just one story but combination of many stories, Zivari's debut is filled with joy and sorrow, adventure and history, triumph and failure, redemption and love. The stories take Sultan through many worlds parallel to his own, each portraying an element of life unique unto itself. He learns of Kerra's history, her connection with his father Rumi, and their many adventures in the pursuit of spirituality and love of many kinds. But when a mysterious old man enters the stories, Sultan realizes the truth of both Ayesha and Kerra and that the diaries are not at all what they appear to be. Based on the life of thirteenth century Sufi poet Rumi, Zivari captures the essence of his life and his work effortlessly within her fictional narrative, her words enveloping his life in a dramatic landscape that highlights his work with startling clarity. A fundamental introduction to Eastern Philosophy, Clay, Fire and the Potter will leave you breathless with its startling imagery and deep, emotional resonance.
