In Progress

I am involved in working on four projects, two works of fiction, one memoire, and a collection of academic essays and film and history. These include The Man Who Swam Out of History, an evocation of the research adventures and trials of a historian; My Wife, the Muslim, the autobiographical humor and foibles of a Muslim - Jewish marriage, Cordoba! Cordoba!, a historical novel / romance set in the realm of the Caliphate of Cordoba in the Tenth Century.
