Description

An exploration of myth, passion and loyalty from the Lebanon’s troubled past, The Rock of Tanios is another superbly rich and rewarding novel from the author of Samarkand and Leo the African. Expertly controlling his multi-faceted narrative with prose of great beauty and power, Maalouf delves into the history of an extraordinary life: that of Tanois, child of the mountains.

Publisher Review

This is a beautifully crafted story detailing the intricacies of the folklores and superstitions which dominated nineteenth-century Oriental village life. * OBSERVER * Told with the simplicity of fable but set on the cusp of the modern world, this is a wonderful tale. * INDEPENDENT * This is as colourful as a fairy tale, and brilliantly translated from the French. * THE TIMES * He is a master storyteller...and his observations of human nature in all its facets is wonderfully accurate throughout. * SUNDAY TELEGRAPH *
