Review quote

"To the left lay Gibraltar. Above lay the land of Andalus, drenched in the blood of defeated Arabs. Below that, red Marrakesh with its veiled Sultans and the roads to Timbuktu. He repeated to himself the name Timbuktu, Timbuktu, Timbuktu, as if he was repeating a favourite song." From The Wanderer by Hassouna Mosbahi.
