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.

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