Back in the 1950's and 60's they used to talk about "Beat Zen" vs. "Square Zen". Laurence Galian's Sun at Midnight
represents a kind of hip Islam, warmhearted and heretical, opposed to everything monolithic and dour in Islam. If such a thing
as american sufism ever appears, this will be one of its holy books."
- Peter Lamborn Wilson
"Galian’s task is essentially one of rediscovering lost treasure. He rediscovers the Ahlul Bayt,
he rediscovers the feminine at the heart of Islam, he rediscovers the Shadow and in doing so rediscovers what it is to be
a real Sufi, Muslim, and Human."
