This is such a wonderful book. The author offers in-site into a land and culture that is relatively unknown. This would be a wonderful book for a book club to read.
The book starts out with two people wandering in the desert searching for refuge. Although the people do not last through out the whole novel they are made vivid through the writing. While the author only carries one character though out the whole novel, the character rises above the short-comings that have befallen on him. This one character proves to all that no matter what we can all rise up in life and overcome anything in our past.
I hope to read additional work by this author in the future.
