Synopsis

With soaring vision and profound intelligence, Robert Stone has written a harrowing, breathtaking novel about our desperate search, at any price, for the consolation of redemption - and about the people who are all too willing to provide it. A violent confrontation in the Gaza Strip, a mind-altering pilgrimage, a race through riot-filled Jerusalem streets, a cat-and-mouse game in an underground maze, a desperate attempt to prevent a bomb from detonating beneath the Temple Mount - Damascus Gate is an exhilarating journey through the moral and religious ambiguities that haunt the holiest of cities and its seekers, cynics, hustlers, and madmen. Set in Jerusalem, where violence, ecstasy, heresy, and salvation are all to be found, Damascus Gate is simultaneously the story of a man's search for truth - or some version of it - and the story of a city where sanity is casually traded for faith.

About Books On The Green

We have over almost 20 years experience in the book trade, starting with our first bookshop in Dorset on the south coast of England. Our main interest has always been in buying and selling selected second-hand and antiquarian books, both through a traditional bookshop and on-line world-wide. We moved our business to West Wales over 12 years ago and have been trading in Llandeilo now for 9 years. We have been selling on-line since 1999. We recently closed the retail aspect of our business in order to concentrated on mail order, local ordering and delivery service, catalogues and on-line sales. We hold a selected second-hand stock of over 7,000 ever-changing titles, including: ART - BIOGRAPHY - CHILDRENS COLLECTABLES - POETRY - MUSIC - WELSH TOPOGRAPHY - LITERARY FICTION - HISTORY - ESOTERIC - PHILOSOPHY - MILITARY - CLASSICS - MODERN FIRSTS - ANTIQUARIAN - THEOLOGY - CHESS ... & much more We also hold smaller stock of selected new books, mainly Welsh interest titles and local history. Many of our new books are generously discounted, and these include Esoterica, Biography and Philosophy. MAIL ORDER AND INTERNET BUSINESS ONLY. LOCAL DELIVERY AND COLLECTION SERVICE. As an independent bookseller in a small rural town, we pride ourselves on the quality of service and selected stock we have to offer. With years of experience in the book trade, we leave no stone unturned! Our customers enjoy a friendly, personal service. We know our business and our stock is carefully selected. We are here most days to advise and answer any questions, process and place orders, make recommendations and replenish our inventory etc. We have accounts with all the major UK mainstream book distributors, including some of the more obscure publishers as well. We can therefore order any new book which is in-print, including all new Welsh language/Welsh interest titles and facsimile editions of key historic texts. There is no extra charge for this service. If you live nearby you can collect book orders personally from our shop. If you live away, we will just ask for the normal postage amount.
