The fourth novel in Tariq Ali's 'Islam Quintet' is set in medieval Palermo, a Muslim city rivalling Baghdad and Cordoba in size and splendour. The year is 1153. The Normans are ruling Siqqiliya, but Arab culture and language dominates the island and the court. Sultan Rujari (King Roger) surrounds himself with Muslim intellectuals; several concubines and an administration presided over by gifted eunuchs. The Bishops, expecting to be at the pinnacle of power are angered by the decadence of the Court. In this captivating novel, Tariq Ali charts the life and loves of the medieval cartographer, Muhammed al-Idrisi. Torn between his close friendship to the Sultan and his friends who are leaving the island or plotting a resistance to Norman rule. Idrisi finds temporary solace in the harem, but confronted by the common people of Noto and Catania his conscience is troubled. A Sultan in Palermo is a mythic and captivating novel in which pride, greed and lust intermingle with resistance and greatness. It is a story from a past whose echoes can still be heard today. There is no continuity in plot or characters between the novels in the Islam Quintet so they each stand alone in their own right.
