really liked it
Read in September, 2009

I picked up this book because the cover art got me...yes the cover. I am a publisher's dream in reagrds to how things look...but when I read the jacket I decided to take it home. I recently read My Name is Red, by Pamuk...and Scherazade, and 1001 nights is mentioned so often throughout...that I was starled(shouldn't have been, but I was) that I keep being pushed towards a better understanding of the overall culture that produced 1001 nights...and this book is once again using her tales to tell another, much more modern tale. I cried. First time author too...
