About the Author:

JAMAL MAHJOUB is Sudanese/British. His first novel, Navigation of a Rainmaker, was published in 1989. He won the Guardian/Heinemann 1993 short story competition.

Review:

The setting is 19th century Sudan: the protagonists a cast of soldiers, nationalists, and others who participate in a society-changing war. Mahjoub's novel documents the religious and cultural dissemination of a world through the eyes of fighters and victims alike. A powerful, moving account. -- Midwest Book Review
