This book is unique as a book of fiction and literature it is also as much a work of history and social commentary on Oman. As a cultural insider, this books inner humanity shone bright as the ‘Sadiyyat Al Qamar’. Beautiful writing and translation on Oman by SQU academic Jokha Al Harthi and Oxford Don Marilyn Booth.
The references to Wadi Aday and Sib, made my eyes tear up. Better sociological writing than any western scholar can pen. An International Booker Prize Winner which should be read by all Gulf watchers.
