The book is far more than a simple historical novel ; like the intricate embroidery of an oriental carpet it weaves back and forth through the centuries, linking the poetry, philosophy and passion of the Sufi past with modernism. Romantic in many ways, sensuous and pleasurable, it tells us about the ‘other’, the mysterious east, that might not be as mysterious and incomprehensible as we still think though – sadly samarcandf with less romance and more fear.
