The Monk, the Moor and Moses Ben Jalloun (English) (Hardcover) Price: Rs.450

The Monk, the Moor and Moses Ben Jalloun is a novel about a deliberately forgotten history; a history that remains hidden in the hallowed inner sanctums of Western academic institutions. Four young people ? students in an American university in 2008 ? set out to discover those truths on their own: not just because they need to know, but because they see how the past affects their own lives in very real ways. Parallel to their lives is the tale of Rehana ? an Iranian from the eleventh century ? and her many passions: her husband, her teacher, her culture and, always, her quest to learn.

Using intersecting narratives, soliloquies, legends and a host of colourful characters, real and imagined, Mirza dismantles the carefully manufactured European myth about the making of the modern world. He brings to life an Islamic civilization that was the flourishing, crackling centre of the sciences and liberal arts.

As much a literary installation as a fictionalized history, Mirza?s novel will help us take a fresh look at the past and, hopefully, understand the great game that is being played in the present.
