Description

He is a European reporter, she is a northern African freedom fighter. She has killed and he has seen it. This is what divides them and also what binds them together. From Babylon to Samarkand, Cuzco to Tibet, this man and woman roam the earth, entangled by love and conflict, longing for a spiritual peace, and yet fearful of the loss of human contact it may bring. 'An insanely rich novel a love story, a war thriller, a metaphysical speculation, a collection of poems, an on-the-spot report, a history book and a cultural guide to Africa, Asia, America, Europe creative art always bursts open boundaries and rules for what is art and what is not. I don't think I have seen so many boundaries burst open so fruitfully and in such a shattering manner' - Kjell Olaf Jensen, Dagsvisen.

Review quote

'An insanely rich novel... a love story, a war thriller, a metaphysical speculation, a collection of poems, an on-the-spot report, a history book and a cultural guide to Africa, Asia, America, Europe... creative art always bursts open boundaries and rules for what is art and what is not. I don't think I have seen so many boundaries burst open so fruitfully and in such a shattering manner' Kjell Olaf Jensen, DAGSVISEN
