Season of Migration to the North by Tayeb Salih

Book Description

'"Season of Migration to the North" is an Arabian Nights in reverse, enclosing a pithy moral about international misconceptions and delusions. The brilliant student of an earlier generation returns to his Sudanese village; obsession with the mysterious West and a desire to bite the hand that has half-fed him, has led him to London and the beds of women with similar obsessions about the mysterious East. He kills them at the point of ecstasy and the Occident, in its turn, destroys him. Powerfully and poetically written and splendidly translated by Denys Johnson-Davies' - "Observer".

Nationalism, Islam and World Literature by Tayeb Salih Nationalism, Islam and World Literature, Hardback (May 2006)

The writer and politician Mahmud al-Mis'adi is a figure of prime importance in the development of North African literature and cultural politics. This book covers both his essays and fiction, written between the 1930s and 1990s, and also examines Arabic literature and its relationship to the West.

Wedding of Zein and Other Stories by Tayeb Salih Wedding of Zein and Other Stories, Paperback / softback

"The Wedding of Zein" takes place in the same village on the upper Nile where Salih's "Season of Migration to the North" is largely set, but here the story that emerges through the overlapping, sometimes contradictory, voices of the villagers is comic and redemptive rather than tragic.
