Set in Granada in the late 15th century, this novel brings to life the turbulent period in Spain following 700 years of Muslim rule, and explodes conventional ideas about 1492. The author also wrote the plays "Moscow Gold", "Iranian Nights" and the novel "Redemption".

Review:

"Tariq Ali captures the humanity and splendour of Muslim Spain ... an enthralling story, unravelled with thrift and verve. Shadows of the Pomegranate Tree is quizzical as well as honest, informative as well as enjoyable, real history as well as fiction ... a book to be relished and devoured." --"Independent"
"Tariq Ali tells us the story of the aftermath of the fall of Granada by narrating a family sage of those who tried to survive after the collapse of their world. Particularly deft at evoking what life must have been like for those doomed inhabitants, besieged on all sides by intolerant Christendom. This is a novel that have something to say, and says it well." --"Guardian"

"All human frailty and nobility is here ... an imaginative tour de force." --Sunday Telegraph
