In the tradition of Herman Hesse's classic Siddhartha, A Moth to the Flame is the first biographical novel of the Sufi poet Rumi. This tale of the life fully lived is the inner story of every life. Rumi's longing for the ultimate is our longing, his anguish is our anguish, and his triumph is our triumph. A Moth to the Flame takes us inside Rumi's world where we see his faith tested and witness his pivotal meeting with the beloved that led, eventually, to his union with God. Based on extensive historical research, including original sources in both Farsi and English, this story reveals the key moments that shaped Rumi's spiritual and literary genius and made him a source of inspiration for millions.Zweig, Connie is the author of 'Moth to the Flame The Life of the Sufi Poet Rumi', published 2007 under ISBN 9780742552432 and ISBN 0742552438.
