*The Narrator is once mistakenly referred to as "Effendi"; however, the word Effendi merely denotes respect for another. The narrator's actual name is never given in the novel. However, in another of Salih's Wad Hamid stories, the Narrator's name is revealed to be Meheimid, a diminutive version of Muhammad.
