The Stone Woman
The Stone Woman is the third novel of Tariq Ali’s Islamic Quintet. Like its predecessors – Shadows of The Pomegranate Tree and The Book of Saladin – its power lies in both its lyrical story-telling and the challenge it poses stereotyped images of life under Islam.
Praise for The Stone Woman
‘Tales of anguish, longing, lust and love all find their way to The Stone Woman – Ali paints a vivid picture of a fading world.’ – New York Times Book Review
