Book Title: The Wedding of Zein and Other Stories

Author: Tayeb Salih

Book Description:

This book by the late Tayeb Salih portrays the culture of northern Sudan better than any other work. The author writes about his homeland, the Ed Debba district of what was then Northern Province, which happens to be where I lived, taught English, and completed my Ph.D. research in the first half of the 1980s. I was fortunate to meet the author a few years before his death in 2009 and frequently use excerpts of his work in my African history classes.
