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.

‘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
