Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

Summary: Clever, funny, and thought-provoking, nbsp; thisnbsp;quirkynbsp;tale about the power of the mind is both larger than life and beyond belief, it is, like Dr. R himself, impossible to pin down#151;or, indeed, to put down Charlatan, guru, master of disguise,nbsp;a simple opportunist or the great pretender#151; howevernbsp;one chooses to see him, one fact is certain: Dr. Ragab is a mysterious man. Talked about by everyone in 1920s Cairo, only a few get the chance to make his acquaintance, and fewer still#151;one person, in fact#151;get to study his life lessons. Hertwig is that lucky soul#151;or not so lucky, perhaps, not when he finds himself, at the very end of the second world war, imprisoned in a bunker by a gang of thugs. And yetnbsp;there is a possible way out. Not in the conventional sense, it's true, but when you're holed up several feet underground, unsure of how long your captors plan to keep you alive, convention isn't necessarily a good thing, as Dr. Ragab would be the first to proclaim#151;and it's his Universal Language that may just provide Hertwig with the escape route he needs. As unconventional as the eponymous Ragab, this novel takes the reader on a surreal journey from Ealing to Egypt, via Germany.
