Abou Ben Adhem, a retired goat herder and one-time taxi driver in America, is an Arab village elder living amid the turmoil of the Middle East-and family relationships that aren't so placid either. An angel named Cohen comes to Abou one night, and Cohen is slangy, modern, and full of information about mankind's behavior through the ages and its relevance to contemporary violence, customs, religious beliefs, and conflicts.
