When Dreams Travel by Gita Hariharan

When Dreams Travel by Gita Hariharan



The powerless must have a dream or two,dreams that break walls,dreams that go through walls as if they are powerless.

The curtain open on four figures,two men and two women.There is the sultan,who wants a virgin every night;there is his brother,who makes an enemy of darkness and tries to banish it;and there are their ambitious brides,the sisters Shahrzad and Dunyazad,aspiring to be heroines-or martyrs.Travelling in and out of these lives to spellbinding effect is a range of stories,dark,poetic and witty in turn,spanning medieval to contemporary times.

With its sharp and lively blend of past and present,its skillful reworking of the historical tradition,and its evocative language,When Dreams Travel has all the significance of modern myth.

A magical tour de force by a writer at the height of her powers.
