    A thousand and one nights in 66 days

    I had never heard of this book before,but I am glad I found it. Part fantasy, part mystery the story is based on a manuscript found in Spain in the mid-18th century dealing with ghosts, gypsies, mysterious cults and enlightenment mores. Potocki was a child of the enlightenment who was himself a contradiction of the times constructs a story that some people would have believed a true journal. It is the story of a gentleman told over 65 days that melds several stories into one narration. Intriguing and fun.

    Several Stories in One

    The Manuscript Found in Saragossa is particularly engrossing because of the many stories the reader becomes involves with. In Potocki's crowning work, he has integrated many different tales, each told by a different character in the frame story. This book follows the adventures of a young Walloon guard as he keeps being misguided by gypsies, ghosts, and two beautiful Morish sisters, all of which tell him the fascinating stories this book is composed of!
