The God Who Begat a Jackal

by Nega Mezlekia

A historical novel set in medieval Ethiopia - not the usual kind of fare. And this one has star-crossed lovers, magical surrealism, and the romance of Africa. Also, it has a narrative that moves along like a speeding train.

So began the turn of events that would propel the young girl from the heights of innocence and virtue into the abyss of anguish, sorrow, misery and heartache, and, finally, into the folds of history, not as a wronged person, but as a saint and legend.
