about

In A Moth to the Flame, the first novel about the life of the Sufi Poet Rumi, based on original sources in both Farsi and English, we discover the key moments that shaped his genius. Although this story happened a long time ago, during another time of war between Islam and the West, this tale of an individual life fully lived is the tale of every life. In the tradition of Siddhartha or The Last Temptation of Christ, his story is the mythic story of the human soul. We watch his faith tested, and we witness his meeting with the beloved which overturned his world and led, eventually, to his union with God. For centuries Rumi has remained alive in the hearts of millions around the world. His story, as told in this novel, burns like a torch of inspiration for us all.
Connie Zweig, Ph.D., a student of Hinduism, Buddhism, and Sufism for more than 30 years, is a Jungian therapist and spiritual counselor in Los Angeles. She is author of The Holy Longing and co-author of the best-selling Meeting the Shadow and Romancing the Shadow. She lives in Los Angeles, California.
