Season of Migration to the North, Paperback Book

Season of Migration to the North Paperback

Part of the Penguin Modern Classics series



'SEASON OF MIGRATION TO THE NORTH-An Arabian Nights in reverse, enclosing a pithy moral about international misconceptions and delusions.

The brilliant student of an earlier generation returns to his Sudanese village; obsession with the mysterious West and a desire to bite the hand that has half-fed him, has led him to London and the beds of women with similar obsessions about the mysterious East.

He kills them at the point of ecstasy and the Occident, in its turn, destroys him.

Powerfully and poetically written and splendidly translated by Denys Johnson-Davies.' Observer
