Reviews

"Magical. . . . Bursting with jinnis and mischief." --Donna Tartt, The Times (London) "[al-Shaykh] brings the modern fiction writer's gift for psychological complexity to the rich-but-streamlined quality of the originals. . . . Read through knowing you're getting the very best of The Arabian Nights." --The Atlantic "Spellbinding." --O, The Oprah Magazine "al-Shaykh performs a great service in retelling [the Arabian Nights]. . . . [She] has shifted the camera angles, as it were, and trained the spotlight on the characters. . . . We get more of the essence of these stories, their anarchic humor and cheerful sadism." --NPR "A treat and a trap for story lovers. Like a contemporary Shahrazad, al-Shaykh has rendered 19 little masterpieces into a wondrously warm, ribald and hilarious concoction." --Hanif Kureishi, The Guardian (London)
