Desperately Seeking Paradise: Journeys of a Sceptical Muslim

by Ziauddin Sardar - £8.99  Granta Books (2005)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781862077553 | ISBN 10: 186207755x

Ziauddin Sardar is one of the foremost Muslim intellectuals in Britain, author of more than 40 books on science, religion and culture. This is his account of his life as a restless believer.
 
"Desperately Seeking Paradise draws on an old Muslim literary tradition in which a man sets out from home and friends, ostensibly to make his pilgrimage to Mecca, but really to indulge his spiritual restlessness... Add some British-Indian blokery and some slapstick, and you will have some idea of the scope and charm of Desperately Seeking Paradise. Interspersed through these adventures are meditations on episodes in Islamic history and other political and religious movements." (James Buchan, Guardian)
