The East/West discourse within the context of Islamic civilization in Andalusia comes to the fore in this novel about ‘The Moor.’ It aims to offer a thought paradigm that brings Mediterranean culture closer together. It is based on a medieval publication by a travelling Moor who records his travels from the Iberian Peninsula to North Africa. Today, one of his descendants is dedicated to researching the history of his family back to the age of the “Moriscoes.”.
