    DescriptionThe Stone Woman is the third novel of Tariq Ali's "Islam Quartet." Like its predecessors - Shadows of the Pomegranate Tree and The Book of Saladin - its power lies both in the story-telling and the challenge it poses to stereotyped images of life under Islam.

    Review quote
    "Tales of anguish, longing, lust and lvoe all find their way to The Stone Woman ? Ali paints a vivid picture of a fading world." - New York Times Book Review "A richly woven tapestry that, even before its completion, merits comparison with Naguib Mahfouz's celebrated Cairo Trilogy. A great work in progress." - Kirkus Reviews "Ali spins a web of tales that is as inventive and fantastical as the Arabian nights." - The Times "... an Eastern Magic Mountain." - London Review of Books "This Chekhov-like scenario of intense emotion within a creaking social structure constructs a rich picture of history and the way we think about history." - Times Literary Supplement
