This definitive biography traces the life of Kahlil Gibran, one of the world's most popular writers and author of the celebrated and hugely successful work, The Prophet.
'More than just a literary biography, the book contains a wealth of social history, vividly evoking the atmosphere of Gibran's time... By way of objective scholarship, combined with a compellingly accessible prose style, Waterfield presents a truthful, detailed account of the life of a best-selling phenomenon and important historical figure.'
Mike Bradley, The Times
