The Shadows of the Pomegranate Tree Tariq Ali
Publisher: Verso



It is a historical fiction that chronicles the final years of one of Granada's last Arab families at the end of the 15th century. When this book opens in 1499, a new Archbishop, Ximenes de Cisneros, has been appointed to Gharnata (Granada). A 360º take from the series "Moonlight takes - August 2010" that shows a moonlight lit view of a pomegranate tree plot in the countryside district of Daimes in Elche. A short time later, she received an unexpected call from her printer, who was in the midst of preparing an Arabic edition of Shadows of the Pomegranate Tree by the Anglo-Pakistani author Tariq Ali. In this fiercely lyrical second installment of a projected tetralogy (following Shadows of the Pomegranate Tree), Ali exposes deep wounds between Christian, Muslim and Jewish civilizations that have yet to heal. Review: Shadows of the Pomegranate Tree. The vanished grandeur of Arab Ghranata is also the subject of Shadows of the Pomegranate Tree, the first novel of Tariq Ali's Islam Quintet. The grove of pomegranate trees on the land of the al-Hudayl family of a region close to Granada (Gharnata) is the place where the privileged family members re-establish their family and class relations for future generations. I've read Shadows of the Pomegranate Tree (Spain in the 1400's), The Book of Saladin (Twelfth century Cairo, Damascus & Jerusalem), & The Stone Woman (decline of the Ottoman Empire). Years before I arrived in Granada, I read Tariq Ali's Shadows Under the Pomegranate Tree. Was as much a novelty to me as were the saguaro cacti that filled my view of the valley east of Phoenix.
