Granada: A Novel
Genre(s): Fiction, Historical
Era(s): 16th Century
Set in southern Spain before the expulsion of the Arabs and Jews. A blend of Granadan rule and Arabic mores blend into a powerful novel, exploring the loss of a conquered populace. The book binder Abu Jaafar and his family witness the triumphal procession of Christopher Columbus, showing off his booty from the New World. The new rulers of Granada confiscate literature, so Jafaar moves his library quietly out of town. Persecuted Muslims fight to build up a government but conflict between Muslims and Christians is inevitable.
