Summary (From the publisher):

Jameel Farran, a Christian Arab, is forced to flee destroyed Jerusalem in 1948. Teaching at Baghdad University, he falls in love with a beautiful Moslem girl, Sulafa, but their turbulent affair meets almost insurmountable obstacles of tradition and circumstance. This is a story of multiple conflicts - between Arab and Jew, desert and city, dictatorship and futile liberal effort, Eastern tradition and Western innovation. Jabra's Baghdad is a city filled with strife, squalor, and frustration; his picture of the brothels, the streets, the drawing rooms, and the lecture halls is a rich and powerful one, realistic and profoundly disturbing.
