How had I managed to strand myself here inside this great empire at the exact moment of its final collapse?
Meet Solomon Ben-David: explorer, adventurer, scholar, woman. Crossing the world in a ship while pretending to be a man, she comes to Sorabol, the richest nation of the medieval East, a land overflowing with milk, honey, and violence, and fights her way from the coast to the capital, battling philosophers, chatting up bandits, and romancing sword-dancers as the country goes up in flames around her. By turns exciting, deep, and hilarious, Sorabol isn’t just an examination of masculinity and femininity, but also an exposé of a forgotten time: the tenth century, when Jewish traders connected East and West, and Korea was the center of the world.
