Editorial Reviews

Doris Lessing
“The resourceful Shahrazad... has never been more entertaining than in this fresh and vigorous version of this immortal book.”
Geoffrey O'Brien - Voice Literary Supplement
“Indispensable.... Not a new version of an old favorite, but a work we've never known.”
Michiko Kakutani - New York Times
“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.”
A.S. Byatt - Sunday Times [London]
“Easily the clearest, most fluent and readable translation.”
Edward Said - The Nation
“A distinguished new translation.”
