About the Author

Ibrahim al-Koni was born in Libya in 1948. A Tuareg who writes in Arabic, he spent his childhood in the desert and learned to read and write Arabic when he was twelve. He studied comparative literature at the Gorky Institute in Moscow and then worked as a journalist in Moscow and Warsaw. In 2010, he received the Arab Novel Award and dedicated the value of the prize to the children of the Tuareg tribes from which he originally hails. William Maynard Hutchins, the principal translator of Naguib Mahfouz's Cairo Trilogy (AUC Press 1990 - 92), has taught English, philosophy, Arabic, and Islamic Studies in Lebanon, Ghana, Egypt, and France. His most recent book is Tawfiq al-Hakim: A Reader's Guide.

Reviews

"a true journey into the human psyche." - Cairo Magazine "The desert setting is al-Koni's strength: its expanse, desolation and mystery is powerfully evoked." - Margaret Obank, BANIPAL No. 23, Summer 2005
