Season of migration to the North by al-Ṭayyib Ṣāliḥ( Book )

100 editions published between 1969 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 1,789 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 )

60 editions published between 1968 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 681 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"--Page 4 of cover

Mit großer Sprachkraft und formaler Raffinesse beschreibt Salich das Aufeinanderprallen zweier Kulturen. Schauplatz des Romans ist ein kleines Dorf am Nil, eine archaische Welt mit jahrtausendealten überlieferten Werten. Der Fluss ist die nährende und die todbringende Kraft. Seit fünf Jahren lebt Mustafa Said, der gutaussehende 50-jährige ""Fremde"", dort. Niemand kennt seine Geschichte, inzwischen ist er jedoch akzeptiert, ja geschätzt und mit einer Frau aus dem Dorf verheiratet. Doch eines Tages holt ihn seine Vergangenheit ein, und er gibt einem jungen Mann, der soeben seine Studien in Engl
