About this title

Synopsis:

This series is designed to bring to North American readers the once-unheard voices of writers who have achieved wide acclaim at home, but are not recognized beyond the borders of their native lands. With special emphasis on women writers, Interlink's Emerging Voices series publishes the best of the world's contemporary literature in translation or original English.

From the Publisher:

"A compelling tale...the poignant story of a man born before his time...the character of Mani is carefully and warmly drawn..." - Times Literary Supplement (London) "Maalouf is as eloquent as ever...[He] weaves tapestries of intrigue that illuminate a broader historical moment...Maalouf, in his engaging prose, goes a considerable way towards restoring Mani to us." - The Times (London) "Maalouf has a rare gift of bringing the past to life...[He] re-creates the life of this fascinating and little known mystic from his relatively humble birth on the banks of the river Tigris, through his rise to fame and his tragic fate." - The Good Book Guide (London) "A beautiful chronicle of the past...Maalouf describes [Mani's life and times] with both beauty and erudition, teaching us a lot of history in the process." - Morning Star (London) "In its starkness, Maalouf's prose acts like a drought of cleansing water...Maalouf can write; his subject is a riveting one...The writing simply gives off a glow that remains long after the book has been replaced on the bookshelf." -East
