Gardens of the Night: A Trilogy
by Faqih, Ahmad
Gardens of the Night tells of a Libyan professor’s struggle against personal demons. It is a haunting exploration of the clashes between violence and sexuality, tradition and modern life, repression and uninhibited freedom. From its evocative opening in Edinburgh to its tragic denouement in Tripoli, this complex interweaving of fantasy and the mundane grips the imagination and throws fresh light on the nature of obsessive erotic love.
