Ignorance is The Enemy of Love is based on a real incident of the last century, it tells the story of a young woman who sends a love letter to a man who cannot read, with sad consequences. Considering this is the first full-length Somali novel, it is pretty good. It is set at the beginning of the twentieth century and is the story of Cawrala and Calimaax. Fate brings them together as they travel on the same ship from Aden. However, the ship runs into a storm but Calimaax is able to rescue Cawrala. This novel was the first major literary publication in the Somali language, which had no official orthography until 1972.
