Moon Over Samarqand

A journey through Central Asia and beyond, Moon over Samarqand is the story of one Egyptian’s quest for the truth. Seeking explanations to his troubled past through a long-lost friend in Samarqand, Ali’s travel brings him into encounters with the Uzbekistan of today, yesterday, and once upon a time. His tale embraces many tales—those of his confounding taxi driver, of Islamic activists, and of the criminal underworld, as well as stories of struggles against authoritarianism in Egypt. Woven among these are legendary tales of gypsies, khans, and madmen, of magic, treasure, and love.

Muhammed Mansi Qandil was born in 1949 in the Egyptian Delta city of Mahalla al-Kubra. He lives in Kuwait with his wife and son, where he writes for the monthly magazine al-'Arabi.
