Lebanese author Wafa Tarnowska opens a window into the Arab world with her magnificent new translation of eight stories from A Thousand and One Nights. This edition is notable for combining favorites such as "Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp" with less familiary tales such as "The Diamond Anklet" and "The Speaking Bird and the Singing Tree." The collection also features the frame story about Shahriyar and Shahrazade.
