Synopsis

Amazir by Tom Gamble

Shortlisted for the RNA Romantic Novel of the Year 2011.

An idealistic young Englishman, Harry Summerfield, befriends an American oil explorer in Gibraltar in the 1930s. Their meeting sparks a journey for both men that will take them across Morocco and northern Africa, to encounter the harsh realities of Berber opposition to French colonial rule and the passion and conflict of a love for the same young French woman. Full of action, character and extraordinarily vivid local colour, this is a vast novel of adventure, romance and intrigue which keeps the reader guessing page after page. From the hustle and bustle of Marrakech to the beautiful solitude of the Atlas Mountains, and incorporating all levels of society in pre-war Morocco (from Berber tribesmen to French politicians), Amazir is a powerfully evocative work dealing with a vast spectrum of human experience - from wonder to despair. Revisiting the traditional epic-style novel format, Tom Gamble's Amazir is a breathtaking journey into the souks and mountains of Morocco that chronicles a powerful love affair and a nation's political turmoil.

About the Author

Tom Gamble was born and grew up in England, but moved to Paris as a young man, working as a musician. He has served as a soldier, trekked alone across isolated parts of North Africa and has run his own training company. This is his first published novel. He currently lives in France. He has a true affinity for Morocco and North Africa and is very often in the region. His knowledge of the country - from the heights of the Atlas Mountains to the bustle of Marrakesh - borders on the encyclopaedic.
