This imaginative novel by the recipient of the 1988 Nobel Prize for Literature is a spirited retelling of the Arabic masterpiece Arabian Nights. Mahfouz refashions the classic tales of Scheherazade in his own imaginative, spellbinding style. Here are genies and flying carpets, Aladdin and Sinbad, Ali Baba, and many other familiar stories, made new by the magical pen of the acknowledged dean
of Arabic letters.
