9780143113218: Wolves of the Crescent Moon

Banned in Saudi Arabia, this provocative, fast-paced debut novel confirms what "The Washington Post" reported about its award-winning author: "Yousef Al- Mohaimeed is taking on some of the most divisive subjects in the Arab world . . . in a lush style that evokes Gabriel Garc?a M?rquez."
In a Riyadh bus station, a man comes across a file containing official reports about an abandoned baby. As he pieces together the shattered life documented within, a larger picture emerges of three outsiders-a Bedouin, an orphan, and a eunuch-linked by fate and trying to make lives for themselves in a predatory city.
Unfolding with the intensity of a fever dream over the course of one night, "Wolves of the Crescent Moon" is a novel of astonishing power and great moral consequence about a deeply traditional society confronting the modern world.
