Summary
Even as a young man, Hamid Farsi is acclaimed as a master of the art of calligraphy. But, as time goes by, he sees that weaknesses in the Arabic language and its script limit its uses in the modern world. In a secret society, he works out schemes for radical reform, never guessing what risks he is running
