The Islam Quintet
"A richly woven tapestry that merits comparison with Naguib Mahfouz's Cairo Trilogy."—Kirkus Reviews
Tariq Ali's acclaimed series of five novels addressing the long history of the clash of Islam and the West. Together the novels form an epic panorama that begins in fifteenth-century Moorish Spain with Shadows of the Pomegranate Tree, and closes in the twenty-first century cities of Lahore, London, Paris and Beijing with Night of the Golden Butterfly.
