really liked it
bookshelves: sub-continental-fiction, middle-east
Read in June, 2011

An interesting story that weaves a global academic together, an Egyptian village and an ancient Jewish trader in the middle east together.
While I am not sure it ultimately holds together the various story lines are all intriguing -- particularly the Geniza one.
