Editorial Reviews

Review

“A fine new translation. . . . Bawdy, colloquial and wondrously inventive, the tales have influenced such disparate writers as John Barth, D. M. Thomas, Jorge Luis Borges, and Martin Amis, all of whom have embraced Shahrazad as the ultimate symbol of the storyteller's art.”
- Michiko Kakutani, New York Times

“Easily the clearest, most fluent and most readable [translation] I have met.”
- A. S. Byatt, Sunday Times

“The resourceful Shahrazad . . . has never been more entertaining than in this fresh and vigorous version of this immortal book.”
- Doris Lessing, The Independent

“[A] distinguished new translation.”
- Edward Said, The Nation

“Indispensable. . . . Not a new version of an old favorite, but a work we've never known.”
- Geoffrey O'Brien, Voice Literary Supplement
