Season of migration to the North by al-Ṭayyib Ṣāliḥ( Book )
98 editions published between 1969 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 1,832 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"When a young man returns to his village in the Sudan after many years studying in Europe, he finds that among the familiar faces there is now a stranger -- the enigmatic Mustafa Sa'eed. As the two become friends, Mustafa tells the younger man the disturbing story of his own life in London after the First World War. Lionized by society and desired by women as an exotic novelty, Mustafa was driven to take brutal revenge on the decadent West and was, in turn, destroyed by it. Now the terrible legacy of his actions has come to haunt the small village at the bend of the Nile. The story of a man undone by a culture that in part created him, Season of Migration to the North is a powerful and evocative examination of colonization in two vastly different worlds." -- Back cover
The wedding of Zein, and other stories by al-Ṭayyib Ṣāliḥ( Book )
42 editions published between 1968 and 2014 in English and held by 669 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Wedding of Zein unfolds in the same village on the upper Nile where Tayeb Salih's tragic masterpiece Season of Migration to the North is set. Here, however, the story that emerges through the overlapping, sometimes contradictory voices of the villagers is comic. Zein is the village idiot, and everyone in the village is dumbfounded when the news goes around that he will be getting married -- Zein the freak, Zein who burst into laughter the moment he was born and has kept women and children laughing ever since, Zein who lost all his teeth at six and whose face is completely hairless, Zein married at last? Zein's particular role in the life of the village has been the peculiar one of falling in love again and again with girls who promptly marry another man. It would be unheard of for him to get married himself. In Tayeb Salih's wonderfully agile telling, the story of how this miracle came to be is one that engages the tensions that exist in the village, or indeed in any community: tensions between the devout and the profane, the poor and the propertied, the modern and the traditional. In the end, however, Zein's ridiculous good luck augurs an ultimate reconciliation, opening a prospect of a world made whole"--P. [4] of cover

Saison de la migration vers le nord by al-Ṭayyib Ṣāliḥ( Book )
9 editions published between 1972 and 2006 in French and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Paru à la fin des années 1960, Saison de migration vers le Nord avait été censuré par le gouvernement islamiste de Khartoum au début des années 1990 en raison de scènes sexuellement explicites. Au jeune étudiant rentré au pays après un séjour en Europe, Moustafa Saïd entreprend de raconter son histoire : celle d'un destin déchiré entre la vie immémoriale de l'Afrique et le mouvement de l'Occident. Moustafa Saïd en effet a passé de nombreuses années en Angleterre, où il a mené des études brillantes, séduit de nombreuses femmes, provoqué le suicide de deux d'entre elles, brisé le mariage d'une autre ... Sur sa vie plane une ombre de mystère. Peu de temps après son récit, inachevé, il meurt noyé dans le Nil, alors qu'il était excellent nageur : son confident tentera dès lors de remonter le cours d'une vie complexe, de comprendre qui fut réellement le fascinant Moustafa Saïd, et c'est avec une science dramatique extrême que l'auteur distille les éléments de cette envoûtante enquête
