Thom Nickels on The Alhambra

“There are books that every reader wants to keep around for a long time. For me, one of those books would be Bruce Bawer’s The Alhambra. This novel is really the apotheosis of the author’s writing on the rise of Islam in Europe, or the selling out of Europe to Islam in the name of […]
