About the Book

Publisher Synopsis

The most entertaining education we could wish for...Leo the African is a celebration of the romance and power of the Arab world, its ideals and achievements - Daily Telegraph

Maalouf's fiction offers both a model for the future and a caution, a way towards cultural understanding and an appaling measure of the consequences of failure. He is a voice which Europe cannot afford to ignore - Guardian

'Leo the African' is based on the true life-story of Hasan al-Wazzan, the 16th-century traveller and writer who came to be known as Leo Africanus, or Leo the African. This is a story of pirates, slave-girls and princesses, in a world in a state of religious flux.
