The author chronicles the kaleidoscopic coming and going over the centuries of coffee traders, naval captains, travellers, political agents – often masquerading as doctors or archaeologists – Turkish pashas, oil men, purveyors of ‘aid’, freelance pilots in the Imam’s primitive air force and UN fact-finders.
