Maïra al-Manzali was born in New York city on a dark and stormy night, the same night that Norman Vincent Peale, author of “The Power of Positive Thinking” died. She thus represents the death of optimism. Al-Manzali hails from the Oranian bey Mustapha el-Manzali, the Yemenite Rabbi Saliman Almanzali of Sana’a, as well as the Moroccan Sufi order which takes it line of spiritual descent from ‘Ali al-Manzali (all these different ways of transcribing the Arabic المنزلي).
