Summary
Award-winning novelist Bensalem Himmich's third novel to be translated into English is a vertiginous exploration of one of Islam's most radical thinkers, the Sufi philosopher Ibn Sab'in. Born in Spain, he was forced to immigrate to Africa because of his controversial views. Later expelled from Egypt, Ibn Sab'in made his way to Mecca, where he spent his final years. Himmich follows the philosopher's journey, outlining an array of characters he meets along the way who usher in debates of identity and personal responsibility through their interactions and relationships with Ibn Sab'in
