Editorial Reviews


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
