Short biography
Omar Imady was born in Damascus  to an American mother and a Syrian father. He was educated at Macalester College and subsequently received his doctorate in Middle Eastern Studies from the University of Pennsylvania. 

For over twenty-two years, Imady was the disciple of Bashir al-Bani (1911-2008), a Damascene Muslim scholar and a renowned Sufi mentor - a relationship which continues to impact Imady’s creative writing.

Imady is the author of several books in Arabic and English. The Gospel of Damascus is his first novel.
