Born in Spain just before the Moors were expelled from that country, Hassan al-Wazzan grew up in North African and became a world traveller, diplomat, author and geographer. Using the real life of al-Wazzan as a starting point, this historical novel examines the intersections and conflicts between the Christian and Arab worlds in the 16th century.
