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'
